In her role at JA, Robin provides vision, leadership and direction for the largest economic education organization in the region and the 13th largest JA operation in the nation. She directs the implementation of JA’s K-12 programs that bring three vital pillars of student success to education; financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship. With the commitment of over 3000 business volunteers, this school year, JA will reach 90,000 kids in 500 Denver metro area and Front Range schools.
The Denver Business Journal named Robin the 2007 Non-Profit Business Woman of the Year, and in 2006, she won the prestigious “Charles R. Hook” award, which recognizes outstanding leadership in the growth and development of a JA area. In 2003, the Girl Scouts-Mile-Hi Council honored Robin as a Woman of Distinction. She has been a delegate on Colorado trade missions to the United Kingdom, South America, and the Czech Republic.
Junior Achievement earned the MetLife Entrepreneurial Achievement Award in both 2004 and 2006. In 2001, the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce named JA the Non-Profit of the Year.
