Her clinical experience includes acute and primary settings with her focus primarily in pediatrics. Additional areas of interest and clinical expertise include transition of care and self-agency for children, adolescents, and young adults with chronic medical conditions. Robin is actively involved in inter-professional initiatives at the college, and university level. Current clinical practice includes involvement in student volunteer coordination and oversight at a Covid-19 mass vaccination site
