Prior to law school, Robbie completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in kinesiology at Western University, focusing his master’s studies in sport management. During this period, he helped grow a Hamilton-based startup sports agency, C.F. Management, managing action sports athletes and entertainers. Robbie also interned for leading global sports agency, Wasserman, where he primarily served PGA and LPGA golfers.
