She lives in Braymer with her husband and three kids, who are active in sports and music.

She stays active in both her work school and her home school of Braymer C-4 where her children attend. Kendra's educational philosophy is that "Building relationships with students are one of, what I feel, the most important thing necessary for learning to happen. I hope that all students can make a personal connection in at least one area of science. I hope that science teachers can use the new standards and help bring science to all kids. My goal as Rural Director I is to help bring PD to anyone, anywhere who wants to receive it."
