Born in Denison where her family still lives, Robbin received a B.F.A. in public relations from Southern Methodist University, a Masters in Journalism from the University of North Texas, and a Masters in Early Childhood Education from Texas Woman's University, where she is enrolled in the doctoral program for child development and early education.

The son of a coach and small-business owner, Rick has been in the restaurant industry his entire life. Today he runs his McKinney-based Wells Hospitality Group, owner of Rick’s Chophouse, Harvest Seasonal Kitchen, and Sterling Events and Catering.
Robbin and Rick launched The Seed Project Foundation in 2015 to help fund small ideas with big goals to promote sustainability in our community -- projects that improve the current quality of life without compromising future generations. Its donation farm, McKinney Roots, feeds thousands in our community each year.
The Wells are both heavily involved in community outreach and philanthropy, passionate about hospitality and education, and proud to be a part of The Goddard School family.
