Senior Community Engagement Coordinator
Robb was born and raised in Vancouver. At the age of 19 a fall from a third-floor balcony left Robb paralyzed from the neck down and is a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic. Robb now works as a Senior Community Engagement Coordinator at the Rick Hansen Foundation and holds relationships with key stakeholders and various disability groups on behalf of the 25th Anniversary Relay. Robb is also a motivational speaker and leads disability sensitivity training seminars.
Spending more than seven years of his life in a hospital, Robb was one of the first high-level, ventilator-dependent quadriplegics to live outside a hospital. It was his motivation to succeed beyond a bleak hospital room and a vision that was instrumental in developing the world's first community-living facility for high-level quadriplegics.
Robb is a renowned mouth-painting artist whose artwork appears on wine labels, and also collaborated on a best-selling book, titled "If Sarah Will Take Me," a poetry collection about winning his wife's heart. Robb is a loving husband and devoted father of twin girls.
