Born in Greenwich, CT, Robin grew up sailing with her family on Long Island Sound and Lake Cochituate in MA, before embarking on many sailing adventures out of Boston with Tony on the cutter, Syrinx, his first boat build. After graduating from Connecticut College, she went on to receive her M.S. in Pharmacology from the University of Virginia and a Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Boston University, followed by a post-doctoral position in Dr. Sullivan’s laboratory at Schepens Eye Research Institute, HMS, Boston, MA. She is still a research associate in the same lab; when she’s not there, she’s busy acting as Treasurer for the boat yard.
