Bio: Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Robin first came to Occidental as a student in 2004, in search of a diverse and challenging learning environment and sunshine all year round. During her time at Oxy, Robin was a varsity athlete on the women's swim & dive team, a charter member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, and worked on campus as a Resident Advisor and Office of Student Life Programming Assistant. After graduating with a degree in Urban & Environmental Policy, Robin worked at Beloit College and University of California Los Angeles, ultimately finding her way back to Oxy in 2015. Now back on campus, Robin directs the recruitment process of our first-year and transfer students, leads our Equity Initiatives Team and serves as a resource for our veteran students.
