Growing up, Robin attended Emerson Elementary School and later went to Duncan High School, Duncan, Oklahoma.
Although not much is known about her college education or her career before stepping into the limelight, we know that she’s been actively involved with her husband’s career, and made her first appearance on his show back in 2002. On the show, she discusses the challenges facing American women and soon began airing her own segment; Aging Gracefully, Ask Dr. Phil and Robin, and the much-expected Valentine’s Day Give Away.
