Baltimore native Robyn Dixon is the epitome of “You can’t keep a good girl down!” She graduated from the University of Maryland, where she earned a degree in business marketing. While Robyn was in high school, she met Juan Dixon, a star athlete at a rival school. In what turned into a whirlwind romance, Robyn and Juan became high school sweethearts, attended college together and eventually married. Juan went on to become a professional basketball player; the couple settled in Maryland and had two talented and athletic sons. However, being married to an athlete wasn’t easy, and when Juan broke Robyn’s heart, the couple decided to part ways. Juan now coaches at a local university and after remaining extremely close and living together under one roof, Juan and Robyn have found a romantic spark and renewed commitment to their family and are engaged for the second time around.
A full-time mom of two active sons, 13-year-old Corey and 11-year-old Carter, Robyn successfully maintains a balance between family, work and fun. In true entrepreneur fashion, Robyn splits her time between her fashion accessory business, Embellished, and her NAACP Image Award-nominated podcast, Reasonably Shady. Robyn focuses her philanthropic endeavors on causes benefiting women, children, and families and is a board member of the Holistic Life Foundation.
