Robin worked for over 40 years as a business restructuring and insolvency lawyer for international law firms, retiring as a partner from Hogan Lovells. She has been a member of the Birch Family Services’ Board of Directors and Board Chair for many years, and is currently the acting chairman of the Board.
Robin’s son, Gabriel, entered the Phyllis L. Susser School for Exceptional Children at the age of six and remained a student there until his graduation. As a young adult, he continues to participate in Birch’s “New Frontier” program benefiting from their job coaching services and social activities. “Birch has been a very important place for our family. My son learned to read, write, do math, express himself in positive ways, and he has developed lifelong friendships,” Robin said. Today, Birch is helping Gabriel develop the career of his dreams, working with the Wildlife Conservation Society, which is a corporate advisory partner for Birch.
Robin cites her first hand knowledge of the meaningful difference Birch Family Services makes in lives of people with developmental disabilities and their families, and is dedicated to ensuring quality services are provided to all those seeking Birch’s support.
“I am happy to play a role in helping the Birch organization as it grows. With new and innovative programs we can serve even more people on the autism spectrum and those with developmental disabilities, and their families.”
