Having worked in social connection all her life, she lives and breathes our mission of connection on a daily basis and truly understands the valuable impact this makes to the lives of others. She has been a Volunteer with Make-A-Wish Australia for 30 years and is a National Patron. As a Carer, Robyn shares her life experiences with many organisations focusing on the wellbeing, inclusion, connection, and enablement of Seniors. (At age 72…she also considers herself a senior citizen).
Robyn has always loved connecting with people. Even as a little girl in the Outback, she made a switchboard out of an apple-box and pretended to connect with people all over the world.
As an adult, she became an Educator, a speaker for over 25 years and has been a Voice-Over Artist for almost 50 years. Her voice has been broadcasted to most homes across Australia, through her iconic ads, animated shows and her work in Australia’s longest running radio series “How Green Was My Cactus”.
In 2021 Robyn was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List with an AM Award for “Significant services to the performing arts and to charitable organisations.”
Robyn won over the hearts of our volunteers and our team at this year’s virtual volunteer summit through her incredibly engaging and thought-provoking presentation. She connected so deeply with the Volunteers, Staff and the purpose of Inclusee – her desire to do more as a Volunteer was kindled. She is honoured and excited to be Inclusee’s first Ambassador.
Robyn embodies a real, authentic understanding of the challenges that can be faced by older Australians and has the power to connect with whoever she is engaging. She has had a very impressive list of achievements throughout her years and has never stopped giving time to incredible causes. We are truly honoured to have the opportunity to work alongside Robyn and look forward to what the future holds.
