Robin Cohen
Occupational Therapy Assistant Student

Originally from Cherry Hill, NJ, Robin stepped out of Southern Jersey and attended Thomas Jefferson University/Phila U and New York University for her Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Associate in Dental Hygiene. Today she has an impressive 30+ years of experience in the dental field. From day one, her favorite part of the job has always been the same: patient interactions – both building trust and creating positive experiences.

Since 2019, Robin has been working with People with Parkinson’s (PwP). She volunteered as a Cornerman for the local Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) program. She was so inspired by the Parkinson’s community that she got certified to teach RSB. That led her to get certified to teach Parte’ (Parkinson’s Art of Expression) and also PWR! Moves. Wanting to help the PD community fight back more, Robin has decided to expand her knowledge and return to her Alma Mater of Thomas Jefferson University to begin her studies as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. Her goal is to gain tools and creative ways to help PwP live a meaningful life. Her anticipated graduation date is June 2024.

Advocacy is very important to Robin. While currently in school she was selected to be a student delegate representative for her professional organization AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association). She is also an ambassador for PMD Alliance (Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance). Robin values her leadership roles in these two organizations and hopes to continue to grow and learn and help the Parkinson’s community.
