Robin is passionate about food! As the Director of Urban Seeds, Robin is active in implementing programs that increase access to fresh, nourishing foods to those who are nutrient-insecure, thereby elevating the Food Justice conversation. She is committed to supporting locally-grown food as one of the many opportunities to create a vibrant local foods economy. Her professional experience as a cardiovascular and diabetes nurse provides the platform for her teaching a "Food as Medicine" philosophy. As Director, Robin is able to engage in impactful and collaborative community initiatives such as supporting a Trauma Informed Nutrition Care training, “Shopping and Cooking on a Budget” classes, and food rescue opportunities.
