Robin Simpson is a wellness coach, personal trainer, and personal chef who lives and works in New York City. Robin’s passion for wellness has brought together many talents over the years and, among many dishes, led her to the fabulous world of grain salads. After years as a professional dancer, learning how to take care of an athlete’s body through exercise, rest and most importantly food became a full time education. Robin has worked as a personal trainer and wellness coach for the past 10 years in New York and Florida. Not so many years ago, she fell head over heels in love with cooking, while growing up standing on a stool in her grandmother’s kitchen. Now, while Grandma’s southern food of fried chicken and dumplings isn’t the best on the waistline, she now devotes her time to eating well and helping others build healthy relationships with food. Outside of spending her free time in the kitchen playing with new recipes she still dances, is an occasional yogi, and dabbles in any creative art-form she can get her hands on.
