Over her 15 years at Booz Allen Hamilton, she has led the development and deployment of multiple knowledge management and case management systems for several government clients.

Additionally, she is responsible for strategic planning efforts, requirements management, budget and scheduling, and resource management.

Prior to joining Booz Allen Hamilton, Ms. Robinson spent almost 3 years at Lockheed Martin as a Systems Engineer. She has served as a career advisor for several junior and intermediate staff.

Ms. Robinson’s focus on STEM is not solely focused on her activities at work – she is an active

In this role she is responsible for improving and maintaining the section’s online web and social media presence, leading technology discussions and training, preparing, and executing budgets, and ensuring that NOVA NCNW solutions maintain a solid security posture. She meets monthly with the Officers of the Nova NCNW Executive Board to discuss upcoming initiatives and technical or communication needs. 

Ms. Robinson is deeply committed to education and this is evidenced by her additional community engagement. She served as an Adjunct Instructor of Computer Science for Independence University where she taught multiple classes of computer science ranging from introduction-to-intermediate-to-advanced (including such concepts as inheritance, encapsulation, polymorphism, classes, and iteration). She also served as an instructor for the Fairfax County Public School Adult and Community Education (FCPAA ACE) program where she instructed in the areas of Personal Computer Basics & Concepts of Programming.
