Our ambassadors

Our Ambassadors come from all walks of life, but share two things: they’re local content creators and proud advocates for carsharing with Modo!

They help raise awareness by telling stories about how round-trip carsharing fits their lifestyle, and offer different perspectives from living car-free and running a business, to family adventures and urban planning.

Want to help spread the Modo word? Contact us at ambassadors@modo.coop if you’d like to become a Modo ambassador.

Denise enjoys outdoor activities, especially trail running, but also track sprinting and road racing. She pretty much enjoys all outdoor activities, including kayaking and hiking. However, she also likes to play games, especially crib with friends and family. When on her own, she likes to read and write, plus cooking and baking in the kitchen.  She has a passion for gardening, particularly trying to keep her garden filled with native plants and as natural looking as possible.

She loves to travel and loves to take the Modo car on a good road trip, primarily on Vancouver Island, where she lives as there are so many wonderful places to explore. She hopes to someday soon head overseas and visit Japan and Scotland or even return to Europe and explore, meet people, and enjoy the food and gardens there.

Jean Huang is an artist based out of Vancouver, BC. She feels most at home when she’s out exploring B.C.’s backyard with her sketchbook and camera—hiking among towering trees, surrounded by the striking mountains, and gazing out over the endless ocean from a cliffside. Nature has always been one of her greatest teachers and inspiration for her artistic practice, as it is where she collects new colours, textures, and lessons. After every outdoor adventure, she is eager to get back to the studio to translate these memories and experiences into paint.

Iona & Paolo are the husband and wife team behind Kapé Philippine Coffee, a social enterprise promoting ethically sourced coffee from Philippine Indigenous women coffee farmers. More than contributing to livelihoods in their homeland, Kapé hopes to spark conversations on immigration, heritage, and identity. Iona & Paolo both believe in the power of meaningful, purpose-led work; this is why they keep full-time jobs (Iona is a Program Lead at a BC non-profit and Paolo is a Professor at Capilano University) and a full-time social venture. Recovering caffeine-dependent humans who used to drink 6 cups of coffee a day, they are also discovering the magic of vintage tea, tisanes, and decaf espresso – enjoying these with multicultural snacks and treats.
