Some of her students have performed in Showboat, the Arie Crown Nutcracker, and the Great America Review. Robin is certified with American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid, CPR, and AED.  She also is Cheer and Dance Coordinator for Indiana Pop Warner which has won 16 National Dance Titles and has taken 30 teams to the Pop Warner Nationals at Walt Disney World.
