Kendal is a Midwesterner, born and raised in the beautiful buckeye state of Ohio. Most recently, she lived in California where she worked as a recruiter. After relocating to Houston, she was first a reader of Houstonia where she learned the best places to eat, drink, shop and explore—as many newcomers do. Although new to the Houstonia team, she is no stranger to the advertising world. After graduating from Miami University (Ohio) she first launched her career in cable advertising with Time Warner Media.

In her spare time, Kendal is a cycling instructor at Define Studios. She and her husband are passionate about the over population of dogs in the city and work closely with Friends For Life as foster parents. You can often find them taking long walks in Memorial Park with their full-time pup, Douglas. Although a Northerner at heart, she is proud to call Houston home!
