ROBIN FAY MASSIE I Spiritual and Life Сoach
ROBIN FAY MASSIE is a professional violist and registered nurse in the Baltimore/D.C. area.
"Heeeey, everyone! My name is Robin and I'm a single mama to a 13 year-old daughter; emergency nurse, professional violist, and an idealist!
My fitness journey was born from a place of brokenness during my marriage to a man who struggled with alcoholism. As he fell apart, I realized I needed to rebuild my spirit. I knew that all I had were my sneakers and a boatload of determination. Over four years, I lost 100 lbs and regained my joy! Since then, I have been working on getting stronger as I have fallen in love with movement!
I have been excited to work with sis Katya Gb following a previous challenge she hosted and can attest to her knowledge and support! We are in good hands here!"
Robin is one of the most energetic and happiest people you'll ever meet, and is excited to empower others to take care of themselves. She has a unique fitness journey - from being overweight to becoming a yoga practitioner and life coach!
She has performed with numerous regional orchestras. As a recording artist, she has appeared in concert, both live and on television, with notable artists such as Jill Scott and Stevie Wonder. Recent backup performances include live appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2017), with Eminem at the Firefly Music Festival (2018), on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2018), NPR’s Tiny Desk summer concert series (2018), and with Ms. Lauryn Hill at the Hollywood Bowl (2019).
With a heart for service, she founded Musicians of Mercy (MOM) in January 2010 – a collective of musicians and artists which produces benefit concerts to raise funds for humanitarian causes – and serves as its Executive Director.
Massie also works nights as an emergency department registered nurse at a hospital in Baltimore, MD. There, she provides the same level of joy, compassion, and artistry with her patients and within the hospital community.
Massie enjoys spending time with her daughter, practicing yoga, dancing, and encouraging others in the realms of life and fitness.
