Kendra focuses on marrying data with organization and brand strategy. She spent her mid-teens completing her undergraduate studies in Political Science and Theatre. As a 17-year-old with a Bachelor’s degree, she spent a year studying studio art and playing rugby (mostly because her exgirlfriend told her that she couldn’t). At 18 she started a Political Science Ph.D. program, only to decide two years later that she wanted to leave academia and change the way people think about data and information. Oddly enough, she uses everything she studied on a daily basis.
