I was born/raised in Orange, California and came to the Big Island in 2001 to work with astronomers at the W. M. Keck Observatory. I married a Hilo boy, Kyle Kinoshita, in 2006 and together we raise our son on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii.
I write a monthly column called "Bizzy Bytes" for North Hawaii News and have just begun writing for Technorati. Every year I also author the West Hawaii Social Media Report. I am a certified Inbound Educator with HubSpot and a Constant Contact "All-Star" for high open rates.
I founded Kinoshita Communications (http://www.laura-kinoshita.com) in 2007 to provide high-quality marketing and professional services to small and mid-sized businesses. I help:
• Build and manage brand relationships
• Increase visibility and word-of-mouth
• Grow and retain more customers
I work with a hui of creative professionals (writers, graphic designers, programmers) and we scale our team to match the project.My ideal client is a B2B company located in the Western United States that needs more traffic to their website and wants to turn that traffic into sales revenue.
