OTA Sells #17 Franchise (Northern NJ)
OTA is excited to welcome Robyn Lusto to the Overtime Franchise Family! Robyn was born and raised in Northern New Jersey. During childhood she and her big brother Mikey were active members in the local P.A.L. She played sports year round including being a cheerleader and even a football player, becoming the first girl ever in her township's history to play on the boys C Squad football team when she was in fifth grade!
She was fortunate to spend her summers at an all inclusive summer camp at which she built lasting memories of enrichment found there.
As she became an adult she followed her interests to many career fields. After completing Audio Engineering School, her first career was as an Audio Visual Specialist in the New York City corporate world. In 2008 she decided to follow a life-long dream to work in television. After graduating from Connecticut School of Broadcasting, she quit the corporate life and started at the bottom as an intern at Fuse TV at age 28. She was quickly hired and worked various positions until she found her home as a freelance Teleprompter Operator. Not forgetting her sports background, she also moonlighted as a video operator for sports production in places like Metlife Stadium and The Prudential Center.
In 2016 she became step-mom to twin 7 year old boys and in September 2018 she welcomed her first child, a baby girl. Having the kids around reminded her how youth sports programming was such a positive impact on her development and childhood. She wants her kids to make lasting friends and memories at summer camp and on sports teams and in sports programs. She also wants to make sure there are plenty of those opportunities in her community and it's surrounding areas.
Robyn will be looking to start programs in the Northern NJ area starting Fall 2019.
