We’re growing! Meet Kendra Kenyon.

16th of Nov 2016

Advocates for the West is excited to introduce Kendra Kenyon, our new Director of Strategic Partnerships! An Idaho native, Kendra has an inborn passion for conservation and the outdoors – especially fishing, trekking around Idaho’s wilderness, and whitewater rafting with her son on the Salmon River where he is a professional guide. Kendra is a former co-owner of Polly Bemis Ranch on the Salmon, and spent many years helping to restore the historical property.

Kendra has worked with numerous Fortune 100 companies and nonprofits as a management and leadership consultant. Most recently she served as Director of the California Academy Foundation in Santa Barbara, where she lives part-time; before that she was President of the Idaho Council of Governments. Kendra also founded a successful consulting firm, The Kenyon Group, which she ran for over 10 years.

Kendra has a Ph.D. in Education with an emphasis on Organization and Leadership Development from University of Idaho, a Masters from Idaho State University, and a BA in Communications from BSU. She also received a certificate in International Relations from University of Cyprus Intercollege in Greece.

Advocates for the West is pleased to welcome Kendra to the team. Her expertise will help us realize the goals set forth in our new Strategic Plan, and launch exciting new projects to help us keep winning for the West!
