Robert was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. He recently completed six years active duty at Fairchild Air Force Base, and will be pursuing his MSW through Eastern Washington University in the fall.
Having fought his own battles with mental health and losing a friend to suicide, Robert knew NAMI was a good fit. Thankfully, they felt the same way! Robert’s goal is to help those in need navigate the complex landscape of the mental health system.
Robert is driven to destigmatize mental health regardless of age, identity, or political differences. When not pursuing that goal, Robert is making waves in the local agricultural scene of Spokane.
