She also felt a magnetic pull to the beauty industry, completing her cosmetology license after high school.

Please tell our readers about Robin Hertz?

Robin: I am a 52 year old woman, A mother of 2, Daniel Baldwin’s other half, a medical intuitive and a child of GOD.

A medical intuitive?

Robin: Yes, since about the age of 6, but it wasn’t until I was 32 years old that I figured out why I was and what my true purpose in life was to be.

She got her first “big girl” job coming fresh out of SUNY Geneseo and is kicking ash ever since! She had a lot of things to consider at the time, as her boyfriend lived in Long Island. She did an internship in NYC, but her heart was here in Rochester because her grandparents live here. It all started from a conversation Ashley experienced with “Soccer Sam”. He was impressed with something she said, and he told her, “Hey, your pretty smart, when you graduate from college come here and I’ll hire you!”Continue reading
