Meet Kendra!

Site Curator & Local Mom

 

 

Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?

I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio in a suburb community. I spent my summers in Manitoba, Canada on Lake Winnipeg with my family, which always holds a special place in my heart. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University in Communications and Business, I moved to New York City where I worked in the entertainment industry as an actress and model. My husband Matt and I met in New York and currently live in West Hollywood with our daughter Bella. We have enjoyed Southern California for over 8 years now and always learning new places in this big city!

 

 

Children?

Bella is 18 months old and such a light in our lives! She was born here in Los Angeles and has taught me so much as a mother. Matt and I are enjoying being first-time parents and she inspires us daily with her infectious smile and sweet spirit. Being a mom of a toddler is so much fun as you experience personality growth, sense of humor and kindness. Bella’s favorite activities are music, dance and being outside at the park.

 

One thing people would be surprised to know about you…

I was a flight attendant, traveled to Europe and lived in four states before moving to Los Angeles. Another fun fact: My husband Matt and I met on the set of a romance novel book cover shoot in New York City. We happen to be from the same hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. Locally, you’ll find me enjoying a latte at The Coffee Bean in West Hollywood, taking a stroller walk on Sunset Blvd and checking out story times and classes with Bella.

 

What’s your favorite thing to do with your daughter?

My husband and I enjoy being outdoors on the weekends. Our favorite place to go is Malibu Beach off the Pacific Coast Highway where we enjoy walking along the water with Bella. We also love going to nearby parks for a family picnic and relaxing in the sun- Coldwater Canyon Park is a favorite in Beverly Hills and of course The Grove is a fun spot to stroll together. When I’m alone with Bella, we go for a daily walk, check out story time at our local libraries and enjoy studio classes together.

 

 

Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!

Currently I work in fashion, print modeling and TV commercial work. I have been with my talent agency for 6 years and also run my own business as a freelance fit model. I’ve always enjoyed the fashion and entertainment industry and have many years of experience but mostly- love my job. The variety of locations, client relationships and being on set are all great. I’m inspired by the history of Los Angeles and all the opportunities this big city has to offer. Dedication, loyal work relationships and bringing your best positive energy is the way to succeed in this business in my opinion. My newest creative endeavor is being part of The Local Moms Network as site curator of West Hollywood Moms!

 

What motivated you to start the West Hollywood Moms site?

As a parent in West Hollywood, I really wanted to learn where to go. Bella and I have enjoyed venturing to new places, meeting local moms in Los Angeles and feeling a sense of community. I am deeply inspired to help others find their place in this community and share any parenting help I can along the way! I also love the goal of The Local Moms Network of “Giving Moms the Gift of Time”, because time is precious and this is a fantastic platform to share information, meet local businesses, create friendships and make a parent’s day easier. Many of the resources on West Hollywood Moms I have had the opportunity to experience personally, recommended by friends or have become a favorite from living in west Los Angles! It makes me happy to help others.

 

Guilty pleasure?

Dark chocolate, a glass of red wine and a relaxing night home!
