About Robin

Born in Banff and raised in the West Kootenay by hippies, Robin is a Nelson transplant from the mountains. She’s inspired by natural beauty, traditional and contemporary art and when environmental conservation meets savvy business decisions. A visual thinker, she likes sketching her ideas, photography and capturing funny videos for all the social media channels. You’ll catch her on a skateboard or snowboard most weekends, loving the Kamloops life—brewpubs, sagebrush, big skies and all. Her brand journalist beats are anything related to the Faculty of Arts and the School of Business and Economics. Send her your story ideas via rphelan@tru.ca or 250.320.6476.
