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, a Jew, but after finding out she was carrying Mike's child, she ended the marriage. 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.
