Selina Robinson

MA (Educ) '91,  1991
BA Hons (Psyc) ,  1987

When I think of community engagement I think of Selina Robinson.

Selina graduated SFU with a BA in Psychology in 1987, and then completed her Masters program in Counseling Psychology in 1991.

She was elected as the MLA for Coquitlam-Maillardville in May, 2013. Before that, Selina served as a City Councillor for Coquitlam for two terms from 2008-2013.

Prior to political life, Selina had a home-based family therapy practice, and was the Director of Development for SHARE Family and Community Services and a Counselling Instructor and Program Developer at the University of British Columbia’s Life and Learning Centre and Vancouver Community College. Selina is also a member of the Coquitlam Terry Fox Run organizing committee.

Wherever she is, and wherever her current engagement takes her, Selina has a passion for social justice and advocates for people in the community: for homeless, for people with disabilities as well as for taxpayers and for children. In short – for all of us. And her advanced skills and talents as a Counsellor (enhanced by the SFU Counseling Psychology program) made her a perfect Councillor, and now an MLA.

When she talks, people listen. When she sets a goal, people follow.
