Robin was a surgeon at University Hospital in Salem. She fell in love with Dr. Mike Horton, but they couldn't be together because she was Jewish. She married Mitch Kaufman, who was also a Jew, but after she found out she carried Mike's son she broke things off. In 1987 she left town when she thought Mike would never convert to Judaism.
In 1989 she returned for a few days to introduce Mike to his son Jeremy.
