Program:

Robyn began her career in 1991 in the field of financial accounting, but quickly found her love of people and business strategy pulling her to the commercial side of the organization.   Robyn transitioned into a sales representative role in 1993 and has served the company in various sales and marketing leadership roles prior to her appointment of Executive Vice President in October 2019.
