Born in North Vancouver and raised in Port Coquitlam BC, Robyn has deep family roots in the Okanagan. She has loved this city all her life and finally was able to relocate her family and call Penticton home in 2012.
Robyn began temping for Ascend in the winter of 2017 and instantly fell in love with salon life, and the hair industry in general. Over the years, she has immersed herself in every part of Ascend; building, maintaining and improving its systems, organizing and scheduling its guests, designing its imagery, researching its retail offerings, developing its programs side by side with David, and anything else that might need doing. In time, she worked her way up to management and in the fall of 2020, Robyn took the leap to happily become a stylist and is now David's registered apprentice! She has become a pillar of the salon and a driving force in the background that helps David to continue realizing the beautiful dream-turned-reality that is Ascend Salon.
(Robyn also happens to be our current local artist on display in the salon.)
Robyn is passionate about people; she loves to connect, share stories, laugh and bring joy and humor to everyone she meets. She is currently apprenticing under David, and she looks very much forward to growing, developing and enjoying this most creative and rewarding career.
