With over 15 years of experience in affordable housing, real estate, and economic development, Ms. Robinson has demonstrated success in strategic planning and execution, public-private partnerships, multi-layered financing, and complex deal structures. Prior to joining the Revenue Authority, she was the Assistant Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Economic Development in the Office of Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. During her tenure, she oversaw the planning and implementation of the County Executive’s signature Blue Line Corridor initiative, helping secure over $400 million in both public and private investments to transform the corridor into bikeable, walkable, amenity-rich neighborhoods.

Her responsibilities included managing the planning and execution of a $500 million multi-phased, mixed-income, public-private real estate redevelopment project in Washington, D.C.


In the formative years of her career, Ms. Robinson worked as a Development Officer for the DC Housing Finance Agency (DCHFA), where she structured comprehensive financing models for over $300 million in various mixed-use affordable housing projects, financed by tax-exempt and/or taxable bond proceeds, low-income housing tax credit equity, historic tax credit equity, and public subsidy.
