Robin has been a licensed physical therapist since 1997 obtaining her Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy, Board certification in Sports Physical Therapy in 2015, and Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2020. Inspire Physical Therapy is her dream and passion….to heal kids and athletes, as well as help educate parents, coaches, and kids on how to avoid and prevent injuries. 

Robin moved to the Beaverton area at the end of 2014. Prior to her move, she worked at Children’s Hospital and Research Center, Oakland (now named UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital). She was hired in 2002 to work in the Orthopedic Clinic alongside Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons helping with post-op care, initial care plans, treatments for home, and referrals to local physical therapy practices. In 2004, Robin was one of 3 founding staff members of their Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes. As their Senior Physical Therapist for over 11 years, she treated various diagnoses, designed and implemented several clinic and community programs, and was a consultant to many local schools and sports clubs in the area.

Her background as an athlete began as a child competing in figure skating from ages 5-14. Throughout high school and college she worked at several gyms as a Lifeguard, Aerobics Instructor, and Swim Instructor.  During her junior year in college, she joined the Chico State Women’s Lacrosse team. In 2015, Robin was accepted to do a volunteer Sports Physical Therapy rotation at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Colorado Springs. Her patients were Olympic hopefuls in gymnastics, wrestling, cycling, ice skating, skeleton, and even the heptathlon. She also had the privilege of working with Para-Olympic hopefuls in swimming and judo. She returned in 2017 as an OTC volunteer working with team USA swimming, wrestling, gymnastics, and cycling. 

In September of 2016, Inspire Physical Therapy was selected as an official collaborating organization with “STOP Sport Injuries”, a national effort by the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM). This opened many doors to research and educational opportunities for athletes, coaches, and parents, as well as support for lectures in our community. 

Robin and her husband Cedric stay active in the community volunteering for many organizations. Cedric is currently board president of the Metro Ski league and sits on the board of Gales Creek Camp for kids. Robin is currently a community member on the Washington County Public Health Council and is a former board member for the Pacific Northwest chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes and Research Foundation and was safety officer for 2 years at Murrayhill Baseball.
