Lee St James is the founder and President of Social Robots, a social enterprise that offers robot helpers to engage and entertain residents and staff at retirement homes and long-term care facilities. Lee is passionate about the opportunity for companion robots to relieve social isolation, boredom, and loneliness for older adults. Her vision is to support the mental health of residents and staff in assisted living by leveraging social robots to help people be more connected with each other.
As a tech-savvy consultant and entrepreneur with over 25 years of business experience, Lee was most recently the General Manager and Vice-President of a design studio that developed robot apps for banking and automotive. She founded Social Robots in 2019 after seeing first-hand the impact of social isolation on her father as he struggled with Lewy-Body dementia.
She has an Honors Business degree from Western University in London, Ontario, Canada and an MBA from INSEAD (pronounced: In-see-add) in France.
