Our Team


Tina Robinson, Owner, Designer

Tina Robinson launched this business in 2003 after designing her own kitchen and the kitchens of several friends.  She has a B.S. in Textile Design from North Carolina State University, and a Masters in Applied Behavioral Science from Johns Hopkins University. She is self taught, and is in a state of perpetual learning. Her approach to design is unconventional yet practical - she strongly believes that armed with good solid design advice, individual clients are the best designers of their own kitchens! One of her kitchens was recently featured in The Hospice of the Chesapeake Home Tour, although most of her awards exist in the hundreds of client referrals she is privileged to have received. She hopes, God willing, to keep designing for many years to come, and is grateful for the honor of doing work she loves, with people she respects.

Mimi Gilinsky, Administrative Assistant, Cabinetry Sales Consultant

Mimi joined Tina Robinson Design in 2007 as the business grew exponentially.  She manages the day to day details of the business, and also assists with showroom appointments and cabinetry sales and service.  Her background in exceptional customer service and managing a busy household make her an asset to clients, suppliers and designers alike.
