“Two years ago my self confidence was gone and I had lost all sense of perspective. I struggled daily with work related anxiety that was completely self-imposed. Robbin worked with me to peel back the layers to understand and increase my awareness of my behaviors and self-talk that were self-destructive and driving the anxiety. She enabled me to step back and regain a healthy perspective, something I had not been able to achieve on my own. Our work together helped to rebuild my self-confidence and “unlock” my thinking. Robbin’s coaching has also helped me rebuild my management skills and provide a sounding board to prepare for key meetings and address human capital issues.” — Cheryl Jennings – SVP, Wells Fargo Bank
She is also co-founder of The IgnitedNation @Work™, a unique nine-month experiential leadership program for women designed to enlighten, engage and mobilize women into meaningful action within the corporate space.
“Robbin made a huge impact on my life. When I met Robbin, stress was taking its toll on my relationships at work and at home. Robbin helped me see that to be the best I can be, I needed to invest in myself. She helped me set small, manageable goals for work and home, with each goal building on the next. Before I knew it, I had the confidence and determination to become a better boss, employee, peer—and most importantly, a better wife and mom.” — Kelly Wilkins, Vice President and CFO, Habersham Electric
As Director of Corporate Relations for the American Heart Association, Robbin recruited and trained hundreds of volunteers and was responsible for raising several million dollars through corporate sponsorship and fundraising activities. In addition, she developed and presented numerous training programs at local, statewide and national conferences including: Building Corporate Relationships, Creating Customer Loyalty, Customer Retention, and Developing Recognition and Cultivation Programs. Robbin was awarded the Heart Association’s New York State Business Development Award for her accomplishments.
While with the Hearst Corporation, she was responsible for running a multi-million dollar classified vertical, held various sales and management roles and won numerous awards for her accomplishments. As Regional Sales Director, Interactive for Hearst Media Services in Connecticut, she was responsible for developing sales teams in multiple markets and increasing the digital sales to several million dollars within the first year with a focus on social media advertising solutions.
Robbin is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach trained through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), the largest in person coach training school in the world and a graduate of their intensive ten-month leadership program as well as an accredited member of the International Coach Federation.
“Working with Robbin for the past year has been a great blessing to me. Simply put, she has personally challenged me to recognize that what I have to say is important and matters in my organization, and in my life. At the end of the day, I’m much more satisfied knowing that I have at least shared my thoughts, regardless of whether others agree or not. Robbin has never allowed me to offer up reasons for not addressing situations or obstacles. Instead, she has held me accountable to developing a plan of action to meet them head on.” — Gail Welborn – Director of Human Resources, Habersham Electric
Robbin is also a certified trainer of the Bigger Game™, a highly interactive workshop for organizations looking to increase engagement, innovation, and collaboration.
“Robbin has been an instrumental force in changing my life. She has helped unleash my motivation, insight and clarity around who I want to be and how I want to live my life. If you are looking for an experience where your life will be transformed in a very profound and positive way, then you should meet Robbin. Her skills, dedication and enthusiasm are infectious and she will ignite in you a desire to fulfill your potential and hold you accountable to be all that you can be.” — Joan Lom, Project Manager, IBM
