Kendall’s background in tech evangelism for firms such as Systems Management Incorporated and Intuit has given her keen insight into the technology needs of global enterprises. Kendall’s mission at TEECOM is to educate new clients about the benefits of TEECOMpartner, the firm’s full-service strategy, design, and project management line, as well as to continue to grow existing relationships. Working closely with our technical staff to identify how their talents can assist clients, she elevates TEECOM’s service level from step one.
Whisky and networking may share a symbiotic relationship, but Kendall didn’t always appreciate the spirit. A few clients introduced her to the regional types of whiskies and how they pair with food, and she became a convert. She now has a full bar at home, and heads to Whiskies of the World every year. Her favorites are the Islay and Highlands whiskies. The hobby combines well with Kendall’s love of travel; she makes it a point to try the whiskies everywhere she goes — including, of course, Scotland.
Grass, beach, indoor… Kendall’s been playing volleyball in every setting since she was ten. She’s played competitively, been sponsored, traveled to the Virgin Islands to compete, and got a scholarship to Sonoma State because of the game. Why volleyball? In part because it’s a uniquely flexible sport — you can play six-man indoors, quad indoors, doubles, or take it outside. “Volleyball has taught me so much about perseverance, how to work with different types of people, how to rely on a team, and leadership,” Kendall says.
Three furry buddies keep Kendall busy when she’s not at work: French bulldogs Mr. Hank and Miss Islay, and Miss Roxanne, a bloodhound Rhodesian mix. Kendall’s love of animals goes beyond the canine, however; she used to work at Safari West, an animal conservation and education foundation, where she began as a volunteer in the bird kitchen and eventually became a full-time employee as a tour guide and “Hoofstock Keeper.” Her favorite big animals at Safari West are the rhinos, which she says come when you call them (“you can tell they’re coming because the ground starts to shake”).
