Robertson was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She studied drama during high school and graduated in 1990 and went on to attend the Breck Academy and The Vancouver Arts Club Theatre Program.
Robertson's television career began with the CBC sketch comedy series The 11th Hour. She later played Harriet Sharpe, a temperamental parking attendant, in the mockumentary film The Delicate Art of Parking. Harriet's fellow parking attendant, Grant Parker, is played by Fred Ewanuick, who later co-starred with Robertson in Corner Gas. From 2004 to 2009, Robertson played Wanda Dollard, an intelligent and sarcastic gas station attendant, on the hit Canadian TV series Corner Gas. In 2010, Robertson's husband and Corner Gas co-star, Brent Butt created a new TV series, Hiccups. The show's lead role, a children's author with anger management issues, was not initially written with Robertson in mind, but upon reading the script, she decided to take on the role. The second and final season of Hiccups ended on August 28, 2011. Robertson plays the role of Principal Moreno in the TV movie, Radio Rebel.
Robertson is an alumnus of the Vancouver TheatreSports League improvisational comedy troupe.
