GET UPDATES FROM Robin Bobbé
 
Robin Bobbé has led an eclectic life, never knowing what she wanted to be when she grew up, much to her parent’s dismay. Constantly working to perfect the art of reinvention, she finally found herself at 60, in the world of acting and commercial print modeling, proving you’re never too old.

Robin lives in a loft, in one of the original Tin Pan Alley buildings in New York City with her photographer husband, kitty cat and ashes of her 2 beloved dogs.

You can view her current print ad which is running on the website Victrelis.com.
She is also a “Guru” on commercial print modeling for older women on the website FabOverFifty.
