After working as a Model internationally for 15 years, Robin now uses my platform as a climate and social justice advocate. I’m represented by the world’s first ethical modeling agency, Role Models Management and I’m an Ambassador for Remake.world and One Tree Planted. I have learned a lot as the co-host of the Hey Change Podcast, which is about optimism in action and I’m also the founder of Parents for the Planet, a new platform with the goal of supporting families to help create a better planet for our children and better children for our planet. I recently launched joinlocalallies.com, a platform I co-founded with my amazing mom, in an effort to support antiracim, inclusivity and equity at the community level. When I’m not hammering away on my computer trying to change the world you’ll find me walking barefoot in the woods with my husband, our son and our good dog.

Re-connecting to the natural world has been a primary focus for GW and his family and HAW aligns with that more than any child care/education facility that they have seen.

Jess has lived in the grey highlands area for 10 years and loves having so many outdoor activities nearby and places to explore. She grew up helping her family organize road running events that raised money for various charities throughout Halton. Some notable events were the Chilly Half Marathon that focused on raising money for a beast coil for the Hamilton General hospital as well as raising funds to support the new ward at Joe brant hospital in Burlington. Jess now works for an athletic company based out of Boston and is lucky enough to work for an organization that has a foundation that values promoting healthy lifestyles and ensuring kids have access to sport through many different fundraising initiatives around the world. Jess looks forward to raising her two girls to enjoy and respect nature and give them as many opportunities as possible to be outdoors exploring.
