Ruth Whyman

Communications Manager

Ruth started working for LYR in 2014, as a community coach. She has a background in competitive rowing, winning the Junior World Rowing Championships, and taking home a silver medal at the U23 World Championships. But, having studied Communication & Journalism at the University of Washington, she always wanted to move towards working in the media. Ruth took over communications in February 2016 and continues to row on the side in the hope of making the 2020 Olympic team.

As a child, Ruth was both a cellist and a pianist. But, she has since discovered that binge watching ‘Real Housewives of Beverley Hills’ is much more satisfying.
