Robin started her career as a cosmetologist in 1995 after graduating from Artiste Cosemtology School. She worked at an Aveda Concept Salon in Kingsport, Tennessee as the In-Salon Color Coach in which she was trained and specialized in color. In 2005, she decided to take her profession to the next level and open her own salon. As fulfilling as it was to achieve this goal, she still wanted to challenge herself and go one step beyond. So in 2009, she attended Jenny Lea Academy's Instructor program and began teaching here in 2010 while still operating her salon. She prepares students for their State Board Practical Exam as well as on the Salon Clinic Floor.
