Why I Love Hope
Kendra loves working with students and she counts it as a great privilege to walk alongside such amazing students in a setting like Hope College. There is such a spirit of adventure in most college students; working with them as they map out their off campus study and seeing the growth in them as they return to campus is one of the very best parts of her work.
Outside the College
Kendra is a wife, mother, sister and daughter who enjoys golfing, hiking with her husband, Dave, and their Australian shepherd, Burt, and spending time on Lake Michigan and its beautiful shoreline.
