Robin has practiced law for more than 30 years in both Pennsylvania and Iowa. She began in public interest law representing individuals who could not afford an attorney in matters of employment, public benefits, and housing. She worked for several years at a public interest law firm representing persons with disabilities in matters of special education, discrimination, and deinstitutionalization. She was also involved in advocating for legislative and policy initiatives to affect systems change. In private practice, Robin concentrated on special education law. She counsels families of children with disabilities to receive an appropriate education, attends IEP (Individualized Education Program) meetings, and provides legal representation in negotiations, settlements, and due process hearings.
In addition, Robin is an adjunct professor in the Education Department at Northampton Community College, teaching courses in special education. She has presented at national, state, and local conferences in matters of disability rights, special education law, and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). She provides trainings on these topics and others, and is PQAS certified, allowing her to offer professional development to early childhood and childcare settings across the state of Pennsylvania.
Robin currently serves on the Board of Directors as president for Mikayla’s Voice, a non-profit organization that inspires kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion. She is also involved in various community volunteer activities including efforts to counter homelessness and hunger. Robin enjoys yoga, walking, writing, and sharing time with her family.
