Robyn was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, where she grew up playing sports in the rain and loving all things “ocean”.

Robyn received a Bachelor in Physical Education from UBC and then a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Alberta.  She spent part of her career working at GF STrong Rehab Center in Vancouver on the Spinal Cord Injury team.  She has a keen interest in wheelchair seating (both power and manual).  She was one of the initial members of the Interdisciplinary Spinal Cord Wound Clinic at Vancouver General Hospital.  Her practice areas of interest include working with adults of all ages with a variety of physical disabilities  ( spinal cord, amputations, arthritis) to maximize their independence as well as providing equipment recommendations and home adaptations to allow clients to ” age in place”.

She met her husband while volunteering as a mountain guide for a youth program in the Princess Louisa Inlet.

Over her career as an Occupational Therapist, she has worked in a variety of settings including community care, spinal cord rehabilitation and long term care.  She has worked in both the public and private health care system.  She enjoys connecting with people and helping them regain their independence.

She and her family moved to Vernon in 2005 and enjoy all the outdoor pursuits that the Okanagan has to offer!
