Kendall is a proud member of the Turtle Clan from Oneida of the Thames First Nation, with a passion for business management, Indigenous engagement, and economic development.
As a part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Kendall's upbringing in her culture has instilled within her a strong set of values that guide her decision-making process towards creating a better and more sustainable future. Being raised in an urban Indigenous community has allowed her to develop an in-depth understanding of the needs of Indigenous Peoples and the focus, compassion and empathy needed when working within organizations and communities.
After completing her studies at Trent University with a B.B.A, Kendall strengthened her leadership skills while working with Indigenous Peoples, communities and organizations across Turtle Island. She is currently working towards obtaining her Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Certified Aboriginal Financial Manager (CAFM) designations.
