We are so excited to welcome Robin Walker, new Community Relations Specialist, to our team! As the Community Relations Specialist, Robin will be promoting and enhancing community relationships of the agency throughout our service area. As part of the LIFEDesigns Development team, she will also assist with fundraising events and campaigns.
Robin was born and raised in Central Florida. Her very first job was at the Walt Disney Company, where she worked in entertainment for 16 years. After Robin visited Bloomington, IN in 2006, she fell in love and relocated to Ellettsville, IN. Before accepting her position at LIFEDesigns, she was employed at Indiana University, working as the Assistance Director for the Cox Scholar Program for 14 years. Although she loved her prior career, Robin mentioned that her true passion has always been to “one day acquire a position where I might be able to work with and for individuals with disabilities”.
Outside of work, Robin enjoys spending time with friends and family, supporting local bands, going on picnics, camping, collecting antiques, and supporting the Edgewood Marching Mustangs. She has 6 children, two of which have Autism, and 3 grandchildren that she loves to spend time with. As a mother of 2 autistic sons, Robin shared that she is very passionate about finding ways for her community to better support individuals with disabilities.
Robin stated, “My goal in this new position as Community Relations Specialist is to make a difference while building stronger relationships with donors, planning engaging events, and strengthening LIFEDesigns’ partnerships within our community”.
We can’t wait to get started!
