As our name says, adventures are important to us. But we leave interpretation open to you. For us, adventure means trying something new and different and that is what we are all about. We take care of your adventure for you so you can step out your daily routine, whether it be for a few hours, a day, a weekend, or even a two week trip.
Robin Richman
At the heart of every Steppin’ Out Adventure experience is the founder and executive director. Robin Richman. Under her direction, a local social club evolved into event and travel company that expanded into multi-divisional company serving large corporations, global service trips and programs and custom events. Known for her infectious laugh, sense of adventure, and obsession with detail and customer service, Robin is part of every Steppin' Out adventure.
She has spent more than 26 years serving over 12,000 clients by bringing people together through adventure and philanthropic travel and events. Experience in launching innovative national and worldwide programs, trips and events that require budget management, program leadership marketing/promotions, and logistical oversight, she has a proven track record as a problem solver and self-starter with entrepreneurial initiative, passion and creativity.
A veteran of experience and engagement planning, her deepest desire is creating a community of people with a thirst for connection and adventure. She has built a robust social network both on-line and off-line that has shared in events such as starting a building fund for a school in Peru; helping a local orphanage build rooms in Tanzania; and showing townspeople how to market their crafts in South Africa. The evidence of her passion in creating community is that repeatedly people show up not only to go to a new country, but also to volunteer for the numerous events and fundraisers she is involved in. She has helped organizations raise millions of dollars through overseeing charity events.
Prior to starting Steppin’ Out Adventures, Robin was program director of the National Association of Women’s Health Professionals. She also has extensive background in marketing communications and public relations as an assistant editor of a local newspaper, the public relations coordinator for a hospital, media manager for the American Academy of Periodontology and the marketing and health educator at Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Steppin' Out was born out of a passion to build community through shared travel adventures, locally and globally. Originally conceived in October 1993 by three business professionals -- Wendy David, Robin Richman and Ben Harris -- all who love the outdoors, the thrill of new challenges and the opportunity to introduce others to new experiences. In May 1997, Robin took sole ownership of the group and has been wonderfully supported by great staff members and volunteers.
In the early years, our original niche target market was for Jewish singles- giving an opportunity to share traditions while also pushing out of their comfort zone physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the history of 78 known marriages and countless Steppin Out babies, Steppin' Out became the place to go for unique travel experiences for solo travelers in general. While we still serve our solo travelers, we are expanding to serve the interests of our broadening clientele including: Family trips, Trips focused on philanthropy and legacy, Travel and Educational programs for Retirees, and one of the most growing interest is the Custom travel division where corporations, affinity groups or family and friends seek out travel that incorporates pieces from everything.
Branched into new markets creating two new divisions. One is a corporate division that produces team building and sales training events and facilitates networking groups.
