Robin was born in Hickory, North Carolina and lived in San Francisco for 2 years in 1984-1986 and has resided in Hickory to date. She was introduced into the Hearing Industry in 2015, with no previous experience in the field. Her first position was as a PSC. The previous dispenser she worked with, advised her that she had excellent communication and personal skills that would be a good fit for transitioning into a dispenser.
Robin love helping people and through her years of employment, all of her jobs have been customer service related, in one form or the other. Her goal for her personal and professional life is always to treat people the way I want to be treated. She thinks that if you can do that, success will come to you.
In Robin’s spare time (which is not a lot), she enjoys getting some rest, but also loves spending time with her daughter, who lives the closest to her. They enjoy shopping, eating out, and just taking a relaxing drive, with no real plan. Robin has a small Yorkie Poo (Zoey), whom she adores. I guess you can say she is a hobby too, because she does utilize much of Robin’s time.
