Kolbe Certified™ Consultant & Ambassador and Strengths Consultant to
Circle of the Panda
Robin has worked for more than 16 years consulting with businesses about hiring and team-building based on an assessment that reveals a person’s natural instinctive strengths. Helping business owners and individuals leverage what makes them tick, communicate better, be more productive and reduce stress. Robin applied this same science as she navigated the world of Autism for 24 years to raise her son. With this unique experience, Robin helps and consults with special needs families to avoid stress, thrive, and find the freedom to be themselves. My calling was to help my son be the best he could be. Now, more than ever, my mission is to help families of the special needs community understand their natural instinctive strengths and use them in ways that will bring them fulfillment and joy. Robin also works with companies to help them hire effectively and optimize individual and team performance. Having happy, productive, and committed employees comes from giving them the freedom to be themselves.
Circle of the Panda - a premier hub for special needs individuals, their families, and caregivers, as well as for the special needs providers and experts. It is a community based online membership platform that provides a network of support and connection for special needs families, caregivers, experts, and volunteers.
