Why Metre?

Healthcare is complex and we get it. Instead of being a generalist for every industry, we are specialists in just one—healthcare. Our seasoned consultants have ten or more years of experience responding to RFPs in the healthcare industry. What that means for you is a knowledgeable, more efficient partner who can hit the ground running.

If you are wondering what is behind our name, Metre (mēder) is defined as the basic pulse and rhythm in a piece of music—without it, music is just noise. The value we bring to your organization is developing targeted messages based on the specific needs of your client so that it sounds like music to their ears instead of just a lot of noise. By applying measured and proven methodologies, we create a project tempo that minimizes stress and allows the whole team to do their best work within their area of expertise. Working in concert, we can position you to win.

A prestigious Fellow of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP), Robin is an industry leader known for her passion to elevate the proposal profession. She teaches and mentors those around her and those coming up behind her and is a favored speaker at industry events. In her 20 years as a member of APMP, she has served as leader of the Healthcare Industry Task Force, member of the International Board of Directors, and chair of her local mid-south chapter. Robin joined the esteemed international Entrepreneurs Organization in 2019 and currently serves on the board of directors for the Nashville chapter.
