Our Founder

As a woman owned agency, KSA’s story is tightly linked to the story of our founder, Katie Schibler Conn. The majority of her career has focused on creative and strategic marketing programming to support organizations in the food & beverage, manufacturing, tourism, and economic development industries.

After more than a decade marketing global brands, Katie traded in her BlackBerry for a backpack to travel around the world for more than a year. Her journey started in Peru and ended in Uzbekistan, with months spent learning and appreciating local food practices, farming and distribution. Three months living in Mongolia on farms raising yaks, goats and sheep ultimately led her back to Rhode Island, craving the rural nature of Southern Rhode Island.

Within 48 hours of returning to the US, an old client from Pepsi called. From there, KSA was born.

The experiences in Mongolia and beyond led Katie to support local food movements, brands, and hospitality businesses whenever possible. As a result, the entire KSA team has worked in some capacity on food and beverage clients.

A Rhode Island Native, Robin comes to KSA with a 20 year history of sales and marketing experience both from the agency side and as the customer. She has a Bachelors’ degree in Marketing and Communications from Bryant University, and has experience marketing for large retail brands like Swarovski and Alex & Ani, to Rhode Island based Centreville Bank. With extensive background in integrated advertising campaigns, she is adept in identifying opportunities and developing solutions that improve performance, profitability, and efficiencies.

Robin has two little ones who haven’t met a sport they didn’t like, so when she’s not in the office, you can find her at the hockey rink or the baseball diamond cheering them on.
