Michelle Robinson – Mentor Team Captain

New Ambassador Training support

Hike it Baby Brockville, ON Founding Branch Ambassador

Michelle Robinson is the Mentor Team Captain. Hike it Baby’s Mentor team provides support and guidance to our global team of Hike it Baby Branch Ambassadors. And as support for New Ambassador training, Michelle is on-hand to answer questions and assist new Ambassadors as they join an existing Branch or start a new one. 

Michelle is the mother of two, 4-year old Mila and baby Tobin. She is a high school Mathematics and Physics teacher and runs a small business creating flower arrangements for weddings. Talk about a diverse skill set! Additionally, she is the President of the Board of Directors for a non-profit daycare in their area, and she loves to travel.

How long have you been a Hike it Baby volunteer?

Since April 2017.

How did you get involved with Hike it Baby?

I began as an Ambassador and shortly thereafter became a volunteer for the National Team. 

What motivates you to volunteer with Hike it Baby?

I believe in the Hike it Baby mission! My kids are happier when they are outside and so am I. I want to teach them to be stewards of the earth, share kindness, and support others. I want to bring back the feeling of having a village of support around you. I’m also a firm believer in leading by example. The world needs more volunteers.

I also adore my HiB Branch, fellow Branch Ambassadors, Dustin Thorley, and Lisa Werden and am so proud of our amazing and wonderful Hike Host team. 

What’s great about being on a Hike it Baby team and why should others want to join you?

The mentor team is an amazing group of selfless individuals who offer their time to support and help other team members! 

Hike it Baby relies on volunteers like Michelle to help our growing non-profit meet our goal of connecting families with young children to nature and each other. We currently have over 70 national volunteers and over 370 volunteer Branch Ambassadors.
