Kendal grew up in Kansas and Iowa where she spent most of her time outdoors with the neighborhood kids exploring and getting dirty or playing sports. Summer road trips to visit family in Texas and California sparked a love of travel and experiencing life outside of her bubble. Kendal attended the University of Iowa, studying graphic design. Not long after graduation, she moved to Philadelphia where she spent many long weekends exploring the east coast from North Carolina to Maine. The Rockies soon came calling and she made the move to Boulder where she began working at Nat Hab in marketing. She now spends much of her free time exploring Colorado’s trails and lakes with her black lab Hershel. Beyond her extensive travel across the U.S., Kendal has traveled to Canada, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, Iceland, Greenland, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
