Robin Barnes

founder / Board President

New Orleans native, Robin Barnes started Move Ya Brass and the Make Your Move Foundation after overcoming a life altering health issue. It was the wake up call that she needed to recognize the importance of living a healthier life. Through her story, she hopes to inspire others through fun and motivational fitness wear.


Thomas Nguyen

Administrator / Running Captain

A Native New Orleanian, Thomas joined the Move Ya Brass Krewe in the second week of its inception and has helped the group with its administrative functions ever since.  Thomas’ drive to exercise stemmed from his own battle with Type-2 Diabetes, which drove him to run more and participate in many races & half marathons throughout the city.

Thomas leads weekly Move Ya Brass runs in City Park and is proud to be able to bring this programming to Make Your Move for the New Orleans Community.
