Coordinator of Student Wellness Initiatives

Hometown: Belen, New Mexico

Bio: A proud Fort Lewis College alumna (graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology), Kendra is grateful to be on campus working in the position of Student Wellness Initiatives Coordinator. She received her Master's degree in mental health counseling from Walden University in 2009 and worked in the public health field for several years before coming back to FLC. Kendra helps promote healthy choices and lifestyles through educational programming. She works closely with students through the Wellness Peer Advisory Council and is passionate about building strengths, meeting people where they are, and collaborating on campus and off to ensure our students are connected with resources and are as healthy and successful as possible. Kendra loves to travel and has visited 19 countries! She also enjoys hiking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, boating, and just taking advantage of the beautiful environment that we live in. If she ever finds spare time, she likes to read books and be creative through some kind of arts & crafts like sewing and painting. She also enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs - any time with them is time well spent.
