Robert holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in social work and has post-graduate training in social work and sociology.  He has served in notable roles as the Race Relations Coordinator of the former Dartmouth District School Board, Executive Director of Family & Children’s Services of Cumberland County, and the Executive Director of Nova Scotia’s Child and Youth Strategy.

Robert also serves as the Executive Director of The Peoples' Counselling Clinic which provides no and low cost counselling and casemanagement services to low income indiduals and special populations.  A "Teaching Clinic” it is staffed by a casemanager and counselling interns supervised by Robert.  Through the Peoples' Clinic, Robert conducts ManTalk - a treatment/support group for male victims of sexual violence, provides services to the Domestic Violence Court Programme in Halifax, and delivers other programmes for special populations.
