Kendra is a rare native Atlantan. Her first restaurant job was at Burger King at the age of 15. Her love of food and hospitality truly began when she was a server at KaLo’s coffee house in Decatur where she worked with a blossoming chef, Ria Pell. Throughout college, she served in a variety of restaurants across Atlanta where she developed a love for good food and wine.
After college Kendra worked for United Behavioral Health and IFC Maro. Following the big financial disaster of 2008, she returned to the restaurant industry. She arrived at Revival a few months after their opening and has been with Red Beard Restaurants ever since. On her 40th birthday, she received a promotion to HR Manager for the company. Best birthday present ever!!!
