Roles & Responsibilities

When Robin isn’t learning the nuances of butter-to-sugar ratios in her newest baking adventures, she’s committed to building a strategy that defines our culture, engages our community, develops our talent and enhances our performance.

Hobbies & Interests

Baking 101 is currently a part of Robin’s curriculum. She’s an avid traveler and enjoys spending time with her friends… she’s got some making up to do on those fronts, though. Thanks, 2020!
