2010 Tillman Scholar
Robin decided to join the United States Marine Corps at the age of nineteen, to follow in the footsteps of her father, a retired Marine Corps veteran who served in Vietnam. Robin’s character has been formed with a deep sense of loyalty to our country and a driving ambition to continue to serve her community. Robin considers joining the Marine Corps to be one of the best decisions she has made as it opened her eyes in immeasurable ways. Robin received her B.A. in Speech, Language and Hearing Science from San Diego State University in 2009 and her Clinical Doctorate in Audiology from the University of California San Diego in 2013. The discipline, pride, commitment to service and other lessons instilled over a mere four years as an active duty Marine still influence every aspect of her professional life today. Robin seeks to carry over these core values into her daily clinical and professional life, always seeking to provide best patient care and evidence based practices, treating patients with compassion and respect, and being an effective leader and mentor in the healthcare field.
