Robin is a registered dental hygienist who learned about Girls on the Run from a patient four years ago. She immediately called the St. Louis Council. That spring she and the school nurse, a fellow runner, brought GOTR to St. Joseph Imperial, one of two schools to start GOTR in Jefferson County.
Now four seasons later she has had just as much fun as her girls Jayne (age 11) and Bailey (age 10). She also was behind the effort to add Girls on Track at St. Joseph Imperial this season. In Robin’s house, they celebrate two seasons: Christmas and GOTR!
As a Type I Diabetic, Robin is available to advise any coach on the unique exercise and blood sugar concerns of any diabetic participants.
Robin’s favorite GOTR moments include having girls who think they are “not athletic” complete a 5k and gain body confidence; hearing that a girl looks forward to GOTR all day; and serving green onions and anchovies as a snack on April Fools Day (they were all relieved to see the “real” snack later).

Robin loves to talk GOTR, diabetes, dental health, all sports and pet rescue. She’s an amazing coach and a great ambassador of Girls on the Run St. Louis!
