What Is MBASA?
MBASA (pronounced “em-BAH-suh!”) stands for Master of Business Administration Spouse Association. But it goes deeper than just a funny acronym, MBASA stands as a strong support system for our members and provides opportunities for service, friendship, leadership, and learning for all its members.
MBASA committees are the driving force behind our activities. We are only able to have so many fun events thanks to the help of all our volunteers.
Whether you come to five activities a week or one a month, we’ll love having you there! There is always something happening with MBASA. Don’t miss a beat by heading over to our calendar.

MBASA is such a powerful support system because of its members, and we look forward to a year of fun, friendship, and personal growth as we love and serve, and thereby create community.

Hi everyone! My name is Roni Robinson. I was raised in San Diego, CA. My parents still live there, so going home for the holidays is most definitely a vacation. I was married in the San Diego temple and have spent 5 ½ amazing years with my husband Aaron and have a 2 year old boy named Liam. I am currently prego in my third trimester (Due in May) and wish I could say I have a pregnancy GLOW. Only pregnancy GROWing going on here. I received my bachelors in psychology and I love learning how the mind works and what makes people tick. I love playing guitar and learning songs that Aaron and I can harmonize to (but lets be honest… who has time for that anymore). I get excited about little things, LOVE food, and would love to go back to school someday (I have always loved school).
