Who is Karrin Taylor Robson?
American attorney, Republican politician and land use consultant Karrin Margaret Taylor Kunasek, was born in Mesa, Arizona USA in either 1964 or 1965; her exact date of birth remains undisclosed, but Karrin’s zodiac sign’s believed to be Gemini. She attracted a lot of attention in 2017, when Arizona Governor Doug Ducey appointed her a member of the Arizona Board of Regents, a position which she held for four years; Karrin entered the 2022 Arizona governorship election, but lost to Kari Lake, who was backed by former US President Donald Trump.
Education and early life
Karrin and her brother Andrew William ‘Andy’ Kunasek were raised in Mesa by their father Carl Kunasek who’s a retired politician, and was a member of the Arizona House of Representatives and president of the Arizona State Senate, and their mother Kathryn Frances Kunasek (nee Ryan) who passed away in 2020, aged 85. Karrin’s brother’s also a politician, and was from 1997 through 2017 on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.
Karrin became interested in politics at a very early age, having been exposed to talks about politics nearly every day. She studied at a local high school and was amongst the best students there, while the activities which she enjoyed taking part in the most were playing volleyball, writing articles for the school’s magazine, and competing with the school’s debating team.
Upon matriculating in 1984, Karrin enrolled at Arizona State University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history in 1988; she continued her education at the Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, from which she graduated with a Master’s degree in 1990, then earned her Juris Doctorate in 1994.
Upon receiving her Bachelor’s degree, Karrin began working for President Ronald Reagan as a staff assistant for his economic policy council; she then also worked for President George H. W. Bush as a staff assistant in his Office of Cabinet Affairs.
