About Robin

A native of Washington, DC, Robin Floyd-Ramson is the Founder and Executive Director of Chess Girls DC. Currently serving as the Washington,DC United States Chess Federation Scholastic Coordinator, Robin uses her unique talents, compassion, creativity and imagination to help girls understand their full potential and expose them to the best possibilities using the cognitive  and executive function skills developed in chess.

Robin believes that the spatial development skills learned through chess can be used as a tool to expand the number of females and underrepresented minorities who pursue advanced certificate degrees and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields.

Most importantly Robin believes that Chess is a game where girls can intellectually challenge the world and that there are no boundaries in which girls can not achieve.
