Robin Cross joined PEC in January to serve as the Fellowship Coordinator for 2017. The previous fall and winter, Robin volunteered at PEC and absolutely loved it! As a volunteer, she supported a wide range of projects throughout the organization and gained valuable experience in the conservation and non-profit world. 

Prior to joining PEC, Robin accumulated 25+ years experience in Federal Procurement supporting large Government contracts. She holds a degree in Commerce from the University of Virginia.

In her free time, Robin likes to play in the dirt, tend chickens and peacocks, and grow, show, and judge camellias. She enjoys traveling with her husband as often as possible. Robin is a Fauquier County Master Gardener and a lifetime member of the American Camellia Society.
