Robin Thomas joined the Brilla team in 2017, as the Middle School Social Worker. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Ms. Thomas went to Temple University in Philadelphia, where she received her bachelor’s degree in psychology. It was there that she developed her passion for youth development and education, volunteering at a middle school and juvenile detention center in her free time. When she returned to NYC, she entered a dual-master’s program, earning her master’s in social work from Hunter College and master’s in education from Bank Street College of Education. Ms. Thomas has worked with children from high school all the way down to infants and toddlers. If she isn’t traveling to a new city or country, you can probably find her at brunch.
