Very few people can match Karrin Taylor Robson’s connection to downtown Mesa. 

Young Karrin Kunasek grew up on 2nd Avenue and celebrated her only birthday party as a child at Pioneer Park. Her brother Andy was born at Southside Hospital, which is now home to Benedictine University’s Mesa campus. 

Taylor Robson remembers rushing around downtown Mesa as a girl of 11 or 12, making deliveries for one of her father’s pharmacies. That particular pharmacy, Lewis Drug, was located where the Mesa Arts Center, the crowning jewel of downtown Mesa, now stands.
