Kendra has served on the Board of Directors for the Chester YWCA. After transitioning from Pennsylvania to Delaware, she continued with her desire to serve by joining the Bear Crossing Maintenance Corporation Board of Directors where she has been a member since 2011. Kendra is also serving as the Board President of the Ability Network of Delaware, formerly known as DelARF, which is an advocacy group focused on nonprofit providers of Human Services.
