My parent’s dedication to achieving equality made a significant impact on me. My four siblings and I were required to vote. If we didn’t get to the polls before noon, we got a reminder call from Mom. Stand up, speak up and never give up was my mom’s mantra. I am fortunate to combine my personal beliefs and technical expertise to support social justice movements. Technology is an essential component in the success of all social justice movements. The synergy of ideas, passion, the dedication of people, effective processes, and technology working together within a mission-driven organization create hope and drive transformational change.
Originally from Detroit, MI, Robin relocated to the Sonoran Desert for the sunshine and stayed despite the triple-digit temperatures. She loves spending time with family, preferably on a Caribbean beach. Robin holds a B.S in Information technology, an M.B.A. in Technology Management, and a Master’s of Science in Information Assurance and Security.
