Robin's Passions

 

Medicine

A graduate of Loyola Medical School in Chicago, Robin is currently a resident physician of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

Yoga

Robin was a dancer and choreographer throughout college and post-graduate studies. Though she still dances, dance brought her to the current practice of mostly Vinyasa style yoga. She studied yoga, meditation and Ayruvadic medicine in India in 2015. Here she learned the true definition of yoga is "unity". Unity with the inner self is equivalent to bringing homeostasis, or balance, in the body and, therefore, health. She also completed training with the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis and numerous mindfulness trainings. 

Science

Inquiry is the backbone to self healing. Scientific inquiry is the backbone to change in ourselves and the world. Robin has pursued research since the start of her career. Her training has included multiple programs at the National Institutes of Health and she has authored over 10 manuscripts and been awarded over 12 grants in her short career. 

Diet

Robin believes "food is thy medicine" and a whole foods plant-based diet is the key to preventing and reversing many common chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. She has studied plant-based nutrition, promotes its ethical sustainability in practice, and cooks almost exclusively vegan for herself and her loved ones. 

Equity

We are each only as healthy as the world we live in. Healthy choices cannot be made when they are not available. Robin believes that all of the above should be available at the needs of all. She is dedicated to bettering individual, societal, and public health.
