Ms. Large was born and raised in the Tucson area.  She has over 10 years of community planning experience, encompassing both the public and private sectors, managing large- and small-scale planning projects, leading multidisciplinary teams and negotiating with stakeholders throughout the planning process.  Her professional experience includes:  preparing planning documents and entitlement applications, such as Planned Area Developments (PADs), specific plans, rezonings, land divisions/consolidations, variances, use permits and development plan submittals; performing due diligence research and site analysis; reviewing proposals for local, state and federal regulatory compliance; drafting ordinances for development procedures and land use controls; and leading community outreach and consensus‐building efforts through neighborhood meetings and planning charrettes. Robin also served as a former Planning Commissioner for the Town of Oro Valley.

During the economic downturn, Robin returned to school and launched a new career in nursing.  For the last 4 years she has practiced as a registered nurse in the intensive care unit of a local hospital.  Although she loved her work in healthcare, she missed planning and the opportunity to create community.  Joining Lazarus, Silvyn & Bangs, PC was the perfect opportunity for her to return to land use and planning.
