Llara Munn


Llara is one of our Marketing and Communications Officers, bringing the work that Active Lincolnshire does across the county to life. Along with the wider team, Llara plays an important role in helping us create opportunities for people to lead more active lives.

Llara is responsible for creating website and social media content that supports and informs our business partners and stakeholders. She also works with partners on local and national campaign promotions to inspire behaviour change in the people of Lincolnshire.

With degrees in both nutrition and media and communications, Llara brings years of knowledge to her role at Active Lincolnshire. She’s passionate about the life-changing effects that physical activity and nutrition can have on mental and physical health – both on a professional level through analysing data and insight, and on a personal level as the tools that helped her recover from an eating disorder.

Outside of work, Llara trains and competes in Crossfit – which means she’s almost as comfortable walking on her hands as she is on her feet. She’s also well known around the office for her love of coffee and fondly reminisces about growing up in Australia, where you can buy a large flat white anywhere you go.
