CEO & Founder
Before founding Turning the Corner, Kendra spent many years searching for her own true career passion. She went to college with the hope of becoming a musician and ended up focusing in computer coding instead. She worked for many years as a Project Manager for IBM, but felt she was struggling in a career that left her dying on the vine. After developing her own process, she discovered she has a true gift for helping other people identify their strengths and passions in the workplace.
