Kendra grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Clinton County, Kentucky. Once she graduated high school, she decided to further her education at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, a few hours from home. During undergrad, Kendra majored in English and ended up graduating with a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Kentucky. After receiving her diploma, Kendra took her education a step further, attending the University of Kentucky J. David Rosenberg College of Law, which is where she received her Juris Doctorate.
At UK Law, Kendra was the Special Features Editor of Volume 110 of the Kentucky Law Journal.
Kendra learned the value of hard work at a very young age, due in part to her spending most of her life on cattle farms and witnessing it firsthand. To this day, Kendra values hard work and has a passion for helping others – especially those who are injured or disadvantaged.
She fostered and embodied this passion during law school, taking part in multiple internships. While attending law school, Kendra interned for the Department of Public Advocacy and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. Following that, she clerked for a well-established law firm in Lexington, where she focused on cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect.
Since graduating from law school and being admitted to the State Bar of Kentucky, Kendra has fought for the rightful compensation of injured people. She takes pride in viewing each and every client as an individual, not a number.
Outside of the office, Kendra enjoys spending time outdoors in nature – hiking, kayaking, and spending time with her family and friends in the Bluegrass State.
