Quivers is best known for her role as Howard Stern’s sidekick on the wildly popular radio show, The Howard Stern Show. Since joining the show in 1981, she has presented her perspective on current events and topics, affording viewers with well-rounded and balanced dialogue.
Quivers grew up giving little thought to the relationship between foods and feeling healthy. She had never been vegetable fan, and the thought of a vegan diet seemed too strict and boring. However, she began to notice family members fall victim to diabetes and heart disease from their dietary choices. It was upon her diagnosis with cancer, Quivers adopted a vegan diet, which she fully attributes to her recovery. Her book, The Vegucation of Robin, highlights her personal, exciting, and inspiring crusade to adopt a vegan lifestyle, with over 90 vibrant vegan recipes by Chef Christopher Sanchez.
