Northern California born and bred, Robin grew up in the South Bay where she lived until attending University of the Pacific and getting her teaching credential. She then moved back to the South Bay where she lived until moving up to Napa in 1999. She began her career teaching third grade in Cupertino in 1995 and had spent her years teaching Kindergarten through third grade and being a full-time mom until meeting the owners of the station, Will and Julissa Marcencia, who asked her if she might be interested in a new chapter. Being a HUGE music lover, having always been a “raised on the radio” kind of girl, and being in between teaching jobs, she jumped at the opportunity to try something new. A little mid-life reinvention never hurt anyone, right? She has loved being the Sales and Traffic Lead for Wine Down Media since the fall of 2019 and taking on being an on-air personality since the summer of 2020! You can still find her occasionally substitute teaching in the Valley because it’s a hard passion to quit.
You can probably find her playing with her 2 dogs, hanging out with her husband and 2 girls (teenagers now!), laughing with her girlfriends, wishing she were at the ocean, lake, or mountains, listening to most any and all music (but especially Bruce Springsteen), volunteering in the schools or community, singing loudly and poorly in her car, traveling near and far, enjoying a nice glass of Napa’s finest or an ice-cold beer, cheering on The Giants, watching old Audrey Hepburn movies, music documentaries, or HGTV, cruising around town on her groovy red scooter, and attending most any event her town and community put on.
The fact that she gets to talk on the radio for a living, still blows her mind.
