I am Robin Thomas and my journey to healthful living started a long time ago. While growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, I was the perennial tomboy, spending whole summers swimming, sailing, water-skiing, and camping by Lake Allatoona.
My love of the natural world and science led me to UNC-Chapel Hill, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biology. At college, I discovered both my career path and the love of my life: my best friend and husband. I’m thankful that Kent, a chemist, has always been by my side, starting all those years ago, when he helped me survive analytical chemistry class. We’ve been married over thirty years and have two sons.
Our oldest son Ryan is also happily married and he and his wife share our love of nature, family and living well. I love being a mom-in-law to Ashley. I hope she feels the same.
Our younger son Kevin has had life long health challenges, starting at 17-months old with a diagnosis of diabetes and resulting brain injury. I’ve searched tirelessly to find answers for him. He’s helped me realize the truly worthwhile things in life.
I worked in medical research for over 24 years at UNC-Chapel Hill, with the majority of those years studying the role of inflammation in chronic degenerative diseases. Though I loved the science in my research career, I needed a more flexible schedule that would work with my family’s needs.
In 2004, I became a USANA Health Sciences Associate. USANA offered an opportunity that helped me manage my previously hectic schedule and my passion to help others discover the benefits of holistic living.
If you’re new to the company, here’s a little information on why I trust them. USANA Health Sciences is one of America’s leading companies in the field of health and nutrition. USANA products are based on over 30 years of research on cellular nutrition and are certified across the world for quality and efficacy. The science behind the company’s products satisfies my analytical side, and their business practices fulfill my human side.
After reading this, I hope you feel you know me a little better. I love helping others pursue their journey to health, purpose and passion.
I will always listen to your needs and questions as we work together to find the best approach. I’ll provide resources that will help you learn about and put into action lifestyle changes that can help you maintain better health, manage your weight, and improve your skin. Realistically, I know I don’t have all the answers, so I also provide referrals to local health care providers in my network.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I’d love to hear from you.
