Robyn has spent most of her career as a nurse in the sleep health/medicine field. Throughout this time many advances have occurred: from collecting sleep data with paper and ink and hand calculations to computerized sleep data acquisitions systems, which provide additional integral information. Options for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea have dramatically improved and offer patients a variety of choices.
Robyn has served on the Board of Association of Polysomnographic Technologists (now American Association of Sleep Technologists: AAST), core faculty member at the School of Sleep Medicine in Palo Alto; faculty, Clinical Sleep Educator for the Board of Polysomnographic Technologists (BRPT). She is a frequent presenter at national and local professional meetings (See events page)
In addition to her sleep background, Robyn has extensive background in clinical affairs within the medical device product development arena, specializing in bringing sleep products to market, clinical marketing of same and the integration of sleep testing for clinical research professionals.
She has numerous publications in respiratory, sleep and clinical research journals. She has an undergraduate degree from The George Washington University and a Masters degree in Nursing.
Robyn enjoys life to its fullest. In addition to a crazy work schedule, she tries to bring balance into her life between a very busy husband, a blended family, a love of nature and water activities such as skiing and boating, to frequent entertaining of friends and family at home. Robyn states ‘I have a village’ I can’t imagine it any other way”
Robyn is looking forward to adding more nurses to her “village of sleep medicine” and hope that you will find the passion and excitement she has found all these years.
