“I’m a hard hat wearing, brain tumor survivor who wants to show others that it’s possible to thrive after trauma and after 50.”
Empathetic, intuitive, and courageous are a few words that describe Robyn. After finding out she had a brain tumor at 50 years old, she had to manage an immensely difficult period of time in her life. She hopes to one day write a book devoted to telling the stories of brain tumor survivors’ lives – to spread hope and educate others about the journey.
“You choose: you can be either a victim, or victorious.”
A lover of writing, Robyn uses the written word to reflect, process, and work through all that life brings her – the joys and the challenges. She loves to research, and will find herself researching just about anything until she becomes an unofficial expert, especially when it comes to her brain.
Robyn loves spending time with her family, especially her granddaughter Presley: “She has a zest for life that inspires me to be the best person I can, every single day.” They enjoy baking together, something Robyn shared with her own grandmother when she was young. Robyn values integrity and kindness, she meets people where they’re at, and loves them unconditionally.
