Rob has been lobbying since 2009, when he began his career in Nova Scotia. Following a move to Ottawa, he led human resources and education reforms for the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, where he helped secure over $500 million in federal financial aid investments. After receiving his Master’s in Political Management from the Clayton H. Riddell Program at Carleton University, he spent time with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). There he worked with some of Canada’s best lobbyists and learned important strategies and tactics related to advancing issues like public transit, housing, policing, and social determinants of health. Following his time with FCM, he worked for seven years with Impact Public Affairs, where he became vice president and went on to a consulting role with Summa Strategies before starting his own business. In 2016 he co-founded Push Politics which continues as a partnership with the Canadian Society of Association Executives under the banner “CSAE Digital Advocacy.” In his spare time, Rob enjoys listening to podcasts about history, business, philosophy, and current events. He also spends his downtime trying out new recipes and watching cooking shows.
Rob looks forward to working with ARNM to advance recognition of the nursing profession across government and promote nurses’ role to the public.#News
