Dr. Robin F. Muir is a licensed psychologist in the Wheeling area.
With a doctorate in psychology from the State University of New York at Albany, Muir
chose psychology out of a desire to help people."Psychology was not my first career.I didn't know much about it, but I chose it because I wanted to help people," she
expressed.She already had earned a business degree and had an insurance major before she found the social sciences.
...Muir also has taught at Wheeling Jesuit University and West Liberty State College for short periods of time.
