Robin was in the corporate world and became burned-out. She noticed her friends and clients also were stressed and strained. Robin knew that if she could find a way to reduce her own stress that she could save herself and share that wisdom with others. She learned that many of us take ourselves too seriously by confusing who we are with what we do.
She resolved to find a way to take our jobs seriously, but ourselves lightly. Her quest led to earning a Masters Degree in Recreation Therapy from the University of Utah which complemented her undergraduate degree in Human Resources and Education. Robin then worked in a psychiatric hospital (which was not unlike working in Corporate America!) She successfully developed a six week stress management program which resulted in her first book, "Know Stress to No Stress - A Step by Step Guide to Achieving Life Balance," published in 1996.
Robin returned to the business world with a mission: give keynote presentations, training, and consulting on issues related to building a productive workplace. She knows how to reduce stress by helping people become more aware, learn to trust and honor one another, rebuild their team spirit and become accountable for their success or lack thereof.
Robin uses team building activities to create fun meetings. People remember the new ideas because they have fun learning them.
