Robin A. Grimm
B.A., M.A., Ph.D.
Robin holds a Ph.D. in English with a specialty in Rhetoric and Composition from the University of Rhode Island. During her undergraduate studies, she was inducted into the Alpha Zeta honor society for agricultural education as she spent the first two years studying Animal Science. She works with CCBS on a variety of projects including the rewriting of Dr. Dodman and team’s award-winning studies into simplified, more “readable” versions.
Robin has nearly 20 years of experience in municipal leadership as well as many years of higher education experience. She currently is the Town Administrator in Sturbridge, Massachusetts and is an adjunct professor of Humanities/Social Sciences at New England Institute of Technology.
When she is not working, Robin can be found on her farm in Northwest Rhode Island where she and her husband have off-track thoroughbreds which she competes in hunter/jumpers, and several rescued animals including cows, donkeys, chickens, ducks, cats, and goats. Robin and her husband also run Grimm Racing Stables, LLC., a small thoroughbred racehorse business.
Robin’s passion for dogs brought her to CCBS, and she currently has a pack of five at home including two retired greyhounds, and three rescued dogs – a mixed breed, an Italian Greyhound, and a wire-haired Dachshund.
