Clarity from Confidence… Strategically, Creatively, Purposefully

It’s time to discover your Why behind the How and live your best life.

Whether you’re 15 or 50+, retiring or starting out, a stay-at-home mom (or dad), a hustling mid-career go-getter, a teacher with questions including ‘what are my post-teaching options?’ or maybe a new/aspiring small biz owner, chances are good that you’re trying to figure things out.

We all are at some point, even if we don’t realize or acknowledge it. “Maybe someday,” we often say. Or, “I can’t do that. It’s too ______ (fill in the blank).” Sound familiar?


Hang out with me and together we’ll get you past imagining… on the way to a Life Plan that fits you best. I guarantee it.

Established in 2015, RobinLK Studios began in a tiny bedroom during a challenging life event. I was knee-deep in anger and fear when my writing voice – an outlet since childhood – fell silent. Words could not convey the overwhelm of those days. But…. my career still required I ‘show up’ every day. Life was going on…. with or without my input.

Thankfully, I stumbled into mixed-media art as I searched for a way to deal. Soon I discovered the power of art as a healing/coping tool as paint, paper, and pastels (along with dozens of other cool art supplies) replaced my words until they could return. (Turned out, it would be a while…)

For the next five years, “words + colors” helped me cope with the day-to-day of campus life and find clarity as I mapped out my Next Chapter.

Since then, RobinLK Studios has grown into a space defined by its creative approach to process, combining left brain strategic thinking with right brain intuitive energy as words + colors help identify goals, overcome speed bumps, and strategically map out Next Steps. It all starts with questions that lead to new thoughts…

Tiny thoughts grow… leading to self-care and self-confidence.



I see you. I am you. I was in your shoes…. Now I’m in flip flops (but still struggling with things…it’s life!)

The difference is – now I use words + colors, lots of strategy, and “some” patience to help me figure things out.

After serving 8 years in the Navy followed by 27 years of service to Florida’s students, their families, hundreds of fellow educators, and dozens of career professionals transitioning from industry into teaching in public Education , I took a strategic leap of faith in 2021 to begin a third career in small business ownership, a goal ten years in the making!

These days, I grow ideas, create things that make a difference, serve others with my God-given strengths and hard-learned skills, and take time daily for things that matter to my family and me. I am living my very best life… (Tip: It sure didn’t happen by accident or overnight!)
