Robyn Mizes comes from a family of teachers, going back many generations; as a result she feels very deeply about investing in and supporting public schools. Robyn received her B.A. from Occidental College, with a major in Psychology and a minor in Education, followed by an MBA from UCLA with a combined focus in Marketing and Human Resource Management. After graduating from UCLA, she became a Human Resources consultant. Now that her children are grown, she is able to pursue her passion for helping people, especially within the education environment. This will be her fourth-year volunteering with the same teacher at Longfellow Elementary School, and her second year volunteering with the Reading Partners program, also at Longfellow Elementary. She has been an active volunteer with the Pasadena Educational Foundation, serving on the Teacher Grants and Community Engagement & Advocacy committees.
