Robin was born to a military family, and has spent her life moving around the East Coast. She graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2013 with a B.A. in Religion and Philosophy. Robin has previously worked as a Canvass Director with the Fund for Equality, where she led canvassing efforts on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign for more than a year.

Having worked in the food service and retail industries, Robin is deeply passionate about worker’s rights – especially their rights to a predictable schedule and a living wage. Her background in philosophy also directs her to a firm commitment to stamping out social, financial, and political inequalities in the home, the workplace, and society at large. She hopes her work with IPS can synthesize these passions and create a more just future for everyone.
