My name is Sarah and I live in Omagh. I am a mum of two young boys and married to my husband for 8 years.
I am a storyteller and judging from this bio a serial entrepreneur! I originally trained and worked as a journalist then moved into PR and arts marketing before launching Sarah Bryden Photography in 2014 and most recently Creative on Social in 2019.
When I say I am a storyteller, it is who I am. I have found that I love to tell stories through my photographs and/or my writing. As I was growing up I always told myself that I wanted a career doing something I am passionate about and well, its had its twists and turns but I feel like I am there now.
Creative on Social is the business that I am so excited about right now. I offer copywriting services for businesses, be it custom written blogs, social media posts, brochure s or website copy. I can also include photography services tailored to each business if needed.
I am also a partner with my husband in Bryden Opticians in Newtownstewart, County Tyrone where we opened in 2008. We strive to offer the best in eyecare and in eyewear. We source independent eyewear brands from across the world to sell in our practice. Quality and design is always our focus to ensure we give the very best to our customers.
I never would have imagined I would be doing what I’m doing in my career now but that’s part of the adventure and I love it.

Dr Ruth Miller-Anderson is a multi-award-winning pharmacist, academic, project manager and entrepreneur. Over more than 20 years, Ruth’s career path has taken her through multiple settings and directions. She initially worked in community pharmacy but her interest in research led her to doing a PhD at Queen’s University Belfast where she subsequently became a lecturer. Life events then triggered some of Ruth’s subsequent changes in career direction which include working with GP practices, and a move into self-employment and business. Ruth diversified again into hospital pharmacy in 2010 and became an associate of the Ulster University at a time when she was experiencing great adversity in her personal life.
Determined to get through this challenging time for the sake of her daughter, and to stay strong and focused, Ruth turned to coaching and has worked with leading business, life and mindset coaches for more than a decade. Ruth then designed and project managed new and innovative pharmacy services for older people which, due to positive outcomes, have been permanently funded and rolled out across Northern Ireland. She is now working in the Department of Health in Northern Ireland leading on a new policy for integration of pharmacy services.
Her interest and passion for personal development led Ruth to start blogging about her career and life experiences as her alter-ego ‘The Swan Doctor’ in 2016. The emotional response to her story on her blog has now led Ruth to helping others and becoming a success and transformation coach. Ruth’s focus is mainly on coaching female healthcare professionals with a desire to create fulfilment and success in all areas of their life, but she is open to working with and helping any busy professionals who resonate with her life story.
Ruth is available for coaching and speaking bookings,
Or if you are interested in being coached by, and working with Ruth, please book a free discovery session on her website.
