She is a Co-Chair of CBE’s Dismantling Racism Team (DRT), a DRT representative to the Brooklyn Justice Advocacy Coalition, a CBE Ritual Committee member, a Shabbat morning services regular, and a past Yachad Parent Committee member. Her son became a bar mitzvah after attending the ECC, After School Program, CBE Elementary Day Camp, and Yachad. Robin has been a Managing Director and Associate General Counsel for JPMorgan Chase since 2013. Earlier in her career, she was New York State’s Executive Deputy Attorney General for Criminal Justice; an Assistant United States Attorney and Deputy Chief/Acting Chief of Appeals in the Southern District of New York Criminal Division; and a litigator at two international law firms. Her awards include the U.S. Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service and the New York City Bar Association Stimson Medal for outstanding career as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. She graduated from Columbia Law School and Cornell University. Robin has engaged in pro bono legal work throughout her career, most recently representing an asylum seeker in immigration proceedings, and previously served on the board of a non-profit organization.

She has spent the past two decades working at Seeds of Peace, a global nonprofit focused on leadership development and conflict resolution, serving the past decade as Executive Director. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and received a master’s degree in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management & Policy from New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service.
