She graduated from the University of Delaware where she received a B.S. in early childhood education. Her love for learning continued when she received her master's degree in speech and language pathology from Temple University. Robin was employed with Cheshire Speech and Language Center in Greensboro and was passionate about working with young children. She was a bilingual therapist who made time for everyone. You would find her visiting various childcare centers, but mostly her "kids" were found at Head Start in Asheboro. In her twenties Robin began her battle with various health issues but never complained and showed strength in the face of adversity. She underwent a heart transplant on July 4, 1999 and remained grateful for her amazing gift every day. Robin was born to advocate for children and their education. She had a generous soul who always gave more of herself than asked. She loved her family, especially her nieces and nephews. Every year she would look forward to planning their annual trip to Disney.
