Robin attended La Jolla High School and later Taft High School in Los Angeles. She started her career at a young age already becoming a model at 14 years old. She was eventually cast in the role of Kelly Capwell in the NBC series “Santa Barbara”, which earned her three Daytime Emmy Award nominations.
