Meet Robin Schlund, founder of JumpstartRVA, compassionate and dedicated to supporting individuals in addiction recovery. With ten years of long-term recovery, Robin holds a master's degree from VCU in Rehabilitation Counseling, she is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor, and is pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology at Liberty University.

She works as a consultant in an opioid treatment program and has founded two other businesses serving Richmond's recovery community, contributing to the local economy and creating a supportive network.

Robin is dedicated to using funds raised for the non-profit to support local recovery programs and establish individual scholarships for those in recovery who qualify for financial assistance. These scholarships aim to provide funds for living expenses and access to recovery residences, creating a safe environment that facilitates addiction recovery. Through this initiative, Robin seeks to empower individuals, offering them a chance at sustained recovery in a supportive and secure community.
