Professor Robbin Brent, M.A. Psychology

Life Span & Development College Credit Course
I was born in Syracuse, NY, and always had the desire to teach. I attended Cazenovia College, in Cazenovia, NY, and received my Associates's degree in Special Education and Human Services in 1982. In 1991 I had a tragic automobile accident that left me paralyzed and my desire to teach remained within my soul. With two small children, it was difficult to go back to school. Once my sons completed high school, I went back to college in 2008 and obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2012 from
South University. I continued my education and in 2015 I graduated with my Master’s degree in Psychology/ Mental Health Counseling from Palm Beach Atlantic University. My career choice was to become a Professor of Psychology, I find the human mind so fascinating. I love teaching and developing a lifetime bond with my students. It is truly a wonderful delight to watch my student grow and prepare.
