The 2009 graduate of Northwestern reached a number of personal milestones during her senior season with the Wildcats. Robison compiled a career-best 31-8 overall singles record, qualified for the NCAA Doubles championship, and finished the season with a doubles ranking of No. 34 during the 2008-09 campaign.

Robison's collegiate career began at the University of Florida, where she played one season from 2005-06, earning Second Team All-SEC honors after going 5-0 in SEC regular-season matches. She helped lead the Gators to a perfect 11-0 mark in conference, the SEC Tournament title and a final national ranking of No. 2.
