Mrs. Robinson, President, has volunteered her services to Face the Challenge since March 1994. She obtained her degree, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, from the University of Missouri-Columbia (May 1981), and at that time was recognized as Outstanding Senior. She married Randy Robinson a month later.
She worked as a primary care registered nurse at St. Luke's Mid-America Heart Institute (MAHI) in Kansas City, Missouri between March 1982-March 1988, and then as a health fitness tester and an out-patient cardiac rehabilitation nurse at St. Luke's Center for Health Enhancement, March 1988-May 1989. She was certified as a critical care registered nurse (CCRN), July 1984-July 1990. Robinson resigned from working as a hospital-affiliated RN with the birth of their third child. Soon afterward she, Dr. Robinson, and their three young children moved to Meudon-Bellevue (near Paris), France where Dr. Robinson did a one-year craniofacial surgery fellowship with Dr. Paul L. Tessier, the world's "father" of craniofacial surgery. Upon completion in April 1991, the Robinson family moved to Centennial, Colorado where they have raised their children, Eric (University of Colorado-Boulder graduate), Scott (US Air Force Academy graduate and pilot), and Anna (Colorado State University student).
