Robyn Jespersen

2021 Winner

If you know Robyn, you know she is a woman who wears many hats. It should come as no surprise that she was nominated and subsequently selected as a winner in Salmon Arm’s Top 20 under 40.

She is a wife and mom to four amazing boys, a volunteer Director with the Shuswap Children’s Association, and a business owner and professional in her field. Her life is busy and happy, and she wouldn’t want it any other way.

For nearly 20 years, Robyn has called Salmon Arm home. For her, it has been the perfect place to build a life and a family and continue to pursue her professional goals.

In her professional role, Robyn is a human resources consultant with her company MOXY HR and the founder of a workforce development project called the Work-Hub, a workforce initiative that helps connect the local workforce with employers and work-related resources. It’s also a recruitment hub offering tiered recruitment services to employers. Hiring is hard – the Work-Hub’s model is designed to make things easier by offering customized services and support based on unique needs of the business.

Her two businesses require a massive amount of time and dedication. Still, Robyn makes sure that doesn’t come at a cost to her family. To meet all the needs of being a professional and a parent, Robyn has become a master of prioritizing and reprioritizing. By separating her business hours from her family life, she can be dedicated to each when she needs to be. Essentially, she can choose the hat she needs to wear, right when she needs to wear it.

The balance she maintains is also due to the teams she has supporting her. Her family, husband and business associates all form a network of support. And when it comes time to recharging, Robyn finds calm by spending time in the outdoors with her ducks or simply enjoying time in nature with her joyful and fun-loving children.
