Kau’ilani Robinson is a communications and marketing professional with experience in managing leisure travel and convention trade communications, PR, events and social media. She began her career in an advertising agency setting working on a variety of food industry accounts. After cultivating skills in the public relations arena and developing a passion for food, wine and travel, she made the switch to the hospitality and travel industry. Now at Visit Seattle, she works with more than 2,000 partners in Washington State to influence travel to Seattle and the region.
Service has always been of high importance to Kau’ilani and there’s no place more iconic or more important to downtown Seattle than Pike Place Market. Kauilani whole heartedly believes in the importance and value of the Pike Place Market Foundation’s (PPMF) work and mission. Not only does the PPMF serve as a model for other cities and communities, the storied history it protects and preserves is something that she wants to be a part of.
Kau’ilani was born and raised on O’ahu (a proud part-native Hawaiian wahine) but now lives and works in the Pacific Northwest. Kau’ilani has called Seattle home for the last 19 years, and loves being outdoors and traveling with her husband and two young children.
