OUR BOARD of directors / Advisors

Bob Evans

Chairman of Board

Bob was born and raised in Toronto, Canada.   Now retired, Bob spent 37 years with Mobil and ExxonMobil in various technical and management positions.

In addition to his for-profit experience, Bob has 13 years of non-profit experience. He volunteered with the Montgomery County United Way (2007 – 2016), serving on its Board as well as the Finance, Strategic Planning, Community Impact, and Strategic Investment Committees.  His experiences with the United Way agencies and the needy combined with his love for childrenled Bob and his wife Pat to volunteer with CASA in early 2013 as advocates.  Bob and Pat continue advocating while Bob serves on the CASA Board and Governance committees for the past 6 years.  

Having co-chaired a United Way committee on behavioral health needs in Montgomery County, Bob was awakened to the community needs in its lack of resources and its complexities of treating behavioral health and insurance issues.  This experience combined with the behavioral health struggles of a close family member has led Bob to join Mosaics of Mercy.  


Carolyn Robistow

Secretary of the Board

Carolyn Robistow, M.Ed, LPC counsels overwhelmed and anxious people-pleasing perfectionists. Her first career as a teacher led to a calling in encouraging wellness for the person in the house who is carrying the mental weight of keeping everyone on-time, organized, healthy, and happy (even at the expense of that person’s own mental wellbeing). Carolyn and her family live in Magnolia. They love spending time outdoors with friends, dancing, and traveling the country to visit family. Carolyn was introduced to Mosaics of Mercy after opening her therapy practice in The Woodlands, and she immediately felt passionate about promoting Mosaics of Mercy’s mission throughout the area.
