Manager, Indigenous Innovation and Development
Robyn is both Metis and Lithuanian, raised on the unceded territories Nlakapamux and Sylix Nations, and currently living on the unceded lands of the Okanagan and Sylix Nations. Robyn is grateful for her many years of experience working as an instructor in Indigenous Adult Education across BC. She has been able to translate her formal education, a Master’s Degree in Professional Communication from Royal Roads University with focused research on creating communication efficacy in digital communications, into creating success in online education.
Robyn carries an education philosophy of traditional grassroots learning, which is a belief in two-way learning where the teacher and the learner are both a teacher and learner. Robyn believes that planting a seed of knowledge in one mind can create generational change and that planting seeds of knowledge in many minds can have a global impact.
Along with extensive experience in the education sector, Robyn is a successful entrepreneur with many years’ experience working as a communications specialist. She is a dreamer and a writer, currently co-writing a creative coaching guide for change. She is also a person with a big heart making a global impact helping children access books and learning tools in developing countries, and in Canada through her passion project – Creating Global Generational Change.
Robyn loves fresh air, biking, kayaking, and being a Mom (not in that order).
