BCRobyn is the personal website of Robyn Hanson, a fourth generation British Columbian passionate about exploring new places in BC and beyond.
Born in Richmond, British Columbia, Robyn grew up in the historic fishing village of Steveston steps away from the Fraser River. Immersed in BC’s fishing heritage, rich ecosystems, and diverse indigenous/settler cultures, it was here on Canada’s west coast where Robyn developed a love of nature, history, music, food, and art. These interests continue to fuel her passion for exploring new places and sharing those discoveries with the world.
Robyn graduated from the French Immersion program at Hugh McRoberts Secondary School in 1998 and from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Arts in 2006 with a degree in Geography and Art History. She has built a career around the intersection of social media and destination marketing and currently works at Destination British Columbia on the Social Media team of the Global Content division. Robyn also freelances as a photographer and writer. This website is her personal passion project.
