Robyn is thrilled to be joining Fistula Foundation as Director of Philanthropy. She believes that healing obstetric fistula is a tremendously powerful transformation and is excited to contribute her experience and dedication to ending fistula in a generation. Prior to Fistula Foundation, Robyn worked at PATH, a leading global health nonprofit that works in partnership with governments and corporations to develop and introduce vaccines, devices, and technology solutions to promote health equity. All lives are valuable, and Robyn is deeply committed to helping women who have been ostracized in their community because of a dire condition caused by poverty and gender inequality.
Since graduating with Honors in Economics from Oberlin College, Robyn has managed a social service center that served over 1,500 people per year, taught English in China, and led tax preparation programs for low-income families. Robyn speaks Spanish and Mandarin, is a classically trained vocalist, and has represented the USA internationally in Australian Rules Football.
