Between fighting fires in San Diego, managing a nonprofit, and motivating leaders nationwide, Robyn Benincasa is always on the go. She considers the sky her second home and frequently travels to speaking engagements at company rallies. Robyn’s flights also allow her to support Project Athena, her nonprofit, which helps women who have survived medical or traumatic setbacks live an adventurous dream as part of recovery. Using her Rapid Rewards points, Robyn is able to fly survivors across the country, and she relies on Southwest to get them to their ventures safely. We’re proud to have your back, Robyn!

Why Southwest “When you’re a speaker and you run a nonprofit, you depend on travel. You have to be with an airline that has Southwest’s flexibility.”


Labors of Love “Find the ‘vein of gold’ within you. It’s important to know what you love and what you’re great at, and then keep searching.”


Let’s Talk “I speak to companies about building successful teams. I want to help them reach their finish lines.”


Dream Big “My husband and I want to build an animal rescue on land we have in Sedona, Arizona.”
