Robynn Albert was born and raised in Elizabethtown, New York, and spent much of her childhood hiking in the Adirondack Mountains with her family. She earned an associate’s degree in business from Champlain College and a bachelor’s degree in communication arts and public relations from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Moving to Vermont in 1999 to work for Blodgett Oven Company in Burlington, Robynn began to explore the Green Mountains. A few years later, after attending a GMC Taylor Series event and joining a winter hike to Waterbury Reservoir, she joined the GMC Burlington Section, and soon became a trip leader. She led her first section outing on July 4, 2008, with sixteen hikers bound for Camel’s Hump. She was hooked.
Robynn is the marketing and training manager at the Vermont Manufacturing Extension Center, working from her home office in Essex Junction.
Leading trips is one of her most rewarding volunteer opportunities and Robynn has gained many life-long friends from her time on the trails and summits of the Greens and Adirondacks. She feels that there is nothing like being on trails with others who also love the outdoors.
