She is an assistant professor in both the Complex Family Planning division of The Johns Hopkins Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics and in the Pharmacology division of the Department of Medicine.

Dr. Robinson cares for patients seeking medical and surgical abortions as well as reversible and permanent contraceptives. She has performed research focused on contraception for women living with HIV, drug interactions involving hormonal birth control methods, clinical pharmacology and microbicides (products that women can use around the time of having sex that decrease their risk of HIV infection).             

Dr. Robinson completed undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia, majoring in Biology and English Literature. She then earned her medical degree and a master’s degree in public health from Tulane University, followed by residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Hahnemann University Hospital/Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. She went on to complete fellowships in both complex family planning and clinical pharmacology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. As part of her fellowship training in clinical pharmacology, she completed a PhD in Clinical Investigation at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

She is actively involved in training the next generation of gynecologic and obstetric providers—serving as instructor, lecturer, and mentor on various aspects of her areas of expertiseand has received several awards for excellence in teaching. Additionally, she has published review articles on drug interactions between medications to treat HIV and hormonal contraceptives, bleeding patterns with hormonal contraceptives, and how obesity may affect hormonal contraception. She has also published original research on the early drug development of two vaginal microbicides.

She is a member of several professional organizations including American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), Society of Family Planning, Physicians for Reproductive Health, and the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO).

Dr. Robinson is passionate about helping her patients achieve their reproductive goals, whatever they may be. One of her favorite things about being an OB/Gyn is getting to care for women ranging in age from the teenage years to the 70s and 80s. She firmly believes her patients are the experts in their own lives, and her role is to provide them with information and support to optimize their reproductive and sexual health.

In her time outside of medicine, Dr. Robinson enjoys hiking, biking, knitting, exploring new places both locally and internationally, and spending time with family.
