"To explain to you what Robyne Parrish means to me and why you should hire her, I have to set the scene for you. I had a milestone birthday back in August. The day began with me going down a dark rabbit hole. I sat in my bed scrolling through Instagram and FB, looking at all the accomplishments of other people. By the time my little sister called me and snapped me out of my descent, I was flying full speed past the what-have-I-done-with-my-life mark. She sat quietly on the phone with me while I cried and tried to explain how I got there. When I finished she put everything back in its proper perspective and I felt better but I knew I was stuck. I had no idea what to do to unstick and move forward. There was a giant chasm between me and my dreams and I hadn’t the slightest idea how to even begin closing it.
In walks Robyne. My first session with her had me dreaming again with real, specific actionable steps to take. I actually started believing I could reach my goals. She didn’t just tell me what to do. She asked about my thoughts and fears. She answered my questions and gave me sound advice. She was knowledgeable, honest, and authentic. A week or so after that session, I was signed to an agency. She didn’t just drop me off at the proverbial door nor did she open it for me. She walked me to it, watched as I unlocked the things standing between me and success, and she celebrated the small wins just as much as the big ones and then nudged me a little further. You should do what I did. Reach out. You don’t have to have your career all figured out. You don’t have to know everything. You just have to know who to call/email." - Delana Flowers, Pittsburgh Actor/Singer

"Robyne was wonderful to work with. As an actor and director with over 25 years in the business, I knew I was in great hands. Not only did she have great suggestions as to what I could do with my monologue to make it more effective, she had some audition tips that proved really helpful when it came time to get on stage. Perhaps most importantly, her unerring support of me and my pursuit of the craft gave me the confidence to believe in myself. That's priceless." - Kate Gross Cantor

" I recently started studying with Robyne, and after only two sessions (heck, after the first), I felt unprecedentedly better prepared for my future in acting.
I have a fancy new resume, a more informed direction for my career, and Robyne has become someone I can turn to for advice, support, resources, and help in making the big decisions that I used to have to pretend I knew how to make.
... so if you've ever wanted an acting coach or a mentor to help you navigate the industry, I can't recommend her enough." - Jim Hartley
"I saw that Robyne was offering coaching and I quickly contacted her to set something up. I had been looking for mentoring/coaching that caters to my specific needs for years now. I set up a video chat with her and in a little over an hour she helped answer questions that I've had for years! She quickly put me on the right track and offered very valuable advice and made me feel confident going forward. I can't wait for our next session!" - Kelly McCaughan
