She is most excited to help strengthen Filene’s ability to create cross-sector partnerships through philanthropy and ultimately, solve the complex problems facing credit unions and the communities they serve.
Don’t forget to ask Robin about how she brought her socially conscious childhood into the lives of her own children, how she accidentally became an actress in college, and how she ended up taking a ride in a submarine and then in a hot air balloon.
