Robin’s degree is in education, with commercial art and communications as additional courses of study. She’s always had a love of enriching children’s lives, either through the arts, through the media, or through organizations such as the Girl Scouts. As a member for almost 43 years, she has been a leader as well as years of other volunteer roles, and in recent years, joined their staff as manager of product programs. She has been a substitute teacher for her local elementary school, done freelance work for local businesses, marketing, public relations, audio voice overs, and maintains websites for numerous organizations.
Robin is married to her husband of 42 years, has two grown children and cared for her elderly mom full time for nearly 20 years. Her affiliation with Sandra Beck of Beck Multimedia afforded her the ability to be dedicated to her family’s needs while allowing her to expand and apply her skills in a positive, useful way. There are never enough hours in the day to add another project or learn a new skill!
In addition to their clients at Beck Multimedia, Sandra and Robin co-host an internet radio program. Military Mom Talk Radio provides a powerful platform for women to discuss their ideas, issues, and concerns with respect to the military lifestyle. Military Mom Talk Radio encourages women to share their experiences of being a military wife and mother. This show educates military families on the resources that are available in both the public and private sector and shares helpful information from women around the world.
Topics range from helping a family member cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, navigating government programs, dealing with family issues, to the struggles of deployment along with being a working mother both in and out of the home.
As a result of her years of elder care, Robin has shared her experiences with podcast listeners through a second program, Passing 50. Here, discussions include cancer survival, health and wellness for middle aged and elders, engaging elders, “sandwich generation” issues, or starting new journeys in part deux of life.
Military Mom Talk Radio and Passing 50 podcasts are available at their showpages on Toginet.com and on iTunes.
