PERSONAL:

Robyn and her husband, Tony have one son, Rhys. Robyn knew early in life that she wanted to study people: their behaviors, their motivations, and their emotions.   Her passion is seeking a greater understanding of behavior at the neuronal level and appreciating how this affects the way we each experience the world. Robyn utilizes this knowledge in creative classroom strategies and in her private practice.
