Raised in Great Neck NY, Robin moved to Boston after college to earn her Masters of Education from Boston University. She married and raised her family in Brookline. After teaching Special Education in the Boston school system for 8 years, working with administration, bureaucracy, parents and a cross section of students, it was time to transition into another field of interest. Building on her communication skills, a love for architecture and design and a longtime interest in historic homes, real estate was a natural fit for Robin.

Her other interests include tennis, speed walking, hiking, travel, art, antiquing and food. Proud supporter of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research. In July 1019, Robin was on the committee for the Annual Fellows Dinner in Newport Road Island. Her other interests include tennis, speed walking, hiking, travel, art, antiquing and food.
