Family, Faith, Service, Curiosity and Growth are words that best describe Robin’s passion and purpose. When she is not driving transformation, Robin can be found spending time with her family enjoying a movie or a new park; emerging in “beautiful environments” whether it is art, music, a spa, or silence; learning something new; cooking; and asking with an open heart-what can I do to help someone today.
