  • Editor

    Robin has editing experience in newspaper, magazine, opinion and feature journalism, as well as audio production and editing.


    As a journalist for more than a decade, Robin's work has appeared in numerous national and local outlets, including the Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Magazine, SacTown, Comstock's magazine, Bustle.com, TechWire.net, and more.


    Good journalism thrives in a community that supports its own, and Robin is proud to serve as a board member for not one, not two, but three local journalism organizations. She currently sits on the board of directors for The Sacramento Press Club, Online News Association's Sacramento chapter, and is the founder of Millennials in Media, Sacramento's only networking and mentorship program for young journalists.


    Raised on public radio, Robin has long had a fascination with working as an on-air journalist. Even though she was born with a severe speech impediment, Robin worked hard to overcome it, and now has her own podcast, has done voice work, and works as a reporter and weekend anchor for local station, KFBK.
