She was awarded the prestigious Schusterman Foundation ROI (2012); selected as a PresenTense Global Fellow (2011 + 2013) for her cutting-edge work in the field of Israel education; and named one of JESNA's 2011 Jewish Education Innovators.

Robbins earned a MS in Education Instructional Design and Technology from Georgia State University and BA in Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern Studies (with a minor in Hebrew) from Emory University.
Ana happily eats, sleeps and breathes Jewish Kids Groups, but she also likes to travel to far-away lands, read good books and play with Ella the kalba (dog).
