There is no doubt that Robin has a deep love for children. Once studying to become a nurse, it is that love for children that led Robin in a different direction. And now, she cannot imagine doing anything different. A caregiver by nature, Robin served as a nanny for several cousins and childhood friends and has also cared for elderly individuals. She likes the safe atmosphere at OHS and says the people who surround her each day feel like family. Robin manages to still find time for her other passion, rollerskating, having taught more than 100 kids how to maneuver on wheels!

Growing up in Coal Country Appalachia, Olivia has always embraced a teacher’s spirit. Once when her Sunday school teacher was late, she took charge of the class, handing out supplies and writing the day’s scripture on the board. When the real teacher arrived, she let Olivia continue to teach the lesson and remarked to Olivia’s mother at the conclusion, “I let Olivia continue to teach the class because she did a better job than I would have!” To this day, Olivia is thankful for humble teachers who allowed her to practice craft at an early age. At Oak Hill, Olivia has a deep appreciation for the many professional development opportunities and the community of lifelong learners.

The people, both co-workers and the students, are what makes Oak Hill School stand out in Kate’s mind, not to mention a family history that runs deep.

Before joining the development office to assist with fundraising and community-building efforts, Kate served as a PE teacher and later successfully launched Oak Hill’s robust after school program. A native of Nashville, Kate enjoys the summer heat that a Southern climate offers and wishes that every day would reach 100 degrees so she could spend time outside with her kids at the pool or in the mountains.
