She has been coming to Lake View since she was a child and now has made Lake View her home. The first day on the job, was during the Polar Vortex of 2014 and it was -30 degrees. Everyone was surprised she showed up. Robin has shown her dedication to Lake View every day since then. Part of Robin’s job is to bring together the classic design of this stately garden cemetery and the newer varieties of plant material in a way that continues the aesthetic of Lake View into the next 100 years. She is thrilled to be added to the list of talented workers making a lasting impact on these
beautiful grounds. Robin gives tours throughout the year focusing on plant characteristics that are unique, special blooms, plant forms and colors. Robin can be found out on the grounds during every season no matter the weather.
