She stated that the idea of pursuing a university education was inspired by a challenge from her grandson, who told her in high school, “I’ll do it if you do it”, adding that the competition then escalated to a points competition that she won.
“I finished something I started that is absolutely amazing, and I feel great,” she said. Robyn and her husband own a trucking company that transports unsafe materials and government equipment.
Robyn expressed her gratitude to Southern New Hampshire University for giving her the opportunity to complete her studies in a way that fits in with running a business. She stated that she usually worked on assignments in rest rooms while on the road.
“I did 90% of my studies from my truck,” says Robyn. She said that because she will soon turn 64, she plans to attend law school, after which she hopes to provide support to survivors of abuse.
