Robin is a successful, diversified, self-motivated professional with 12+ years experience in Communications and Nonprofit and For-Profit Management, as well as grassroots activism, recruitment, outreach, training, and development.
Currently, Robin Spielberger is a Political Public Relations and Digital Media Consultant for numerous clients through her own small business, BurnWire. She is also a professor of Communications at Concorde Career College, in addition to being a digital activist, unapologetic travel junkie, social media maven, coffee addict, grassroots organizer, advocate of the Oxford comma, and a proud Memphian.
Formerly the Director of Digital Development, Outreach, and PR for the Tennessee Firearms Association, a Field Rep for the Leadership Institute, and a Senior Campaign Advisor for Stooksberry for Congress, Robin has created over 25 student groups across the states of Tennessee and Mississippi, trained hundreds of activists, directed over 400 volunteers in door-to-door campaigning, voter ID, registration, phone banking, and fund-raising, raised over 60,000 dollars for a first time candidate, produced a 1st Annual Statewide Event, and was named the Overall Top Field Representative in LI history.
She also volunteered her time and skills to the 2012 Presidential Campaign in New Hampshire, led an Official Presidential Campaign in Shelby County, Tennessee, and most recently, excelled as a first-time candidate for Memphis City Council, earning a variety of important endorsements from organizations, news outlets, and individuals. She received 20 per cent of the vote against a highly entrenched incumbent and proved that social media has permanently changed the face of political participation, as well as political campaigns, making it a very important aspect of all campaign planning and one that a candidate cannot do without.
When she isn’t rolling through the Tennessee backroads, advocating for liberty and training activists, you can find her at home in Memphis, TN, playing with her dog, Morgan, reading the latest mystery novel, learning to play the guitar, fighting for justice in local government, or catching up on the latest TV phenomenon.
Robin graduated from the University of Memphis with Bachelor’s and a Master’s in Journalism, emphasis in Advertising and Public Relations, and Political Public Relations and Digital Media, respectively.
