Hey there, I'm Kendall!
I am a Lifestyle + Wellness blogger, spin instructor + a certified holistic health coach.
It's my mission in life to empower women to up level their business, life + health.
Buuuttttt, let's back it up a lil bit, shall we?!
Just a few years ago I felt stuck, just like you, in a corporate sales job (yawnnnn...) dreading the beginning of a new morning + longing to land the job I *really* wanted. I graduated college with a degree in Broadcast Journalism to be a TV host...so you can see how corporate sales didn't even come close.
What I thought would be a short stint in the corporate world, turned quickly into two loooong years. I learned a shit ton, negotiated two 10k+ raises and worked with some pretty amazing clients. I was living in NYC in my own apartment at the age of 22, doing/buying whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.
You would've thought I had it all. But instead I felt like a fraud. At work, I was never fully present + at home I felt like I was meant to be something different. Nearing the end of that second year, I had enough. I was searching for any way out + came up short every time.
So, I quit.
Without a plan. Without another source of income. Without really much thought of a next step at all.
Yes, probably not the smartest move but easily the best I could've made with what I knew then. I had no fall back, no second stream of income + no real way of knowing everything would work out but what I did have was the confidence to trust that little voice inside of me telling me me I wasn't where I belonged.
Now, it was by no means rainbows + unicorns from here on out. In fact, it was hardddd. Like, really hard. Mentally + emotionally the toughest thing I've ever had to pull myself through. I had a tribe of family + friends that I leaned on big time through the process, but I knew I had a passion that exceeded selling corporate office furniture.
What drew me to broadcasting was my passion for connecting + communicating with people. That's when I felt the most lit up.
So, I got a job working retail at Lululemon + started freelancing as a Lifestyle + Entertainment Host for various websites, learning about all different types of people in all different industries. And with no concrete plan or solid direction at the time, I started taking spin classes as a way to relieve stress + give myself an outlet.
During class, I was able to release all the fears + doubts + let all that shit goooo. It wasn't long before I became a certified instructor.
It's funny, but this little 45 minute cardio sesh changed my life. It deepened my love of connecting + empowering people tenfold. By realizing there is more than one way to utilize your passion + purpose it became clear to me that I need pay it forward + share what I've learned with others that wish to live their best life, now.
For anyone out there who wishes to live their passion + uncover their dream life, it is possible.
Now, I don't recommend jumping ship without a plan. I've done it the hard way + there's no need for you to do it too. I'm so happy to have a place to share what I've learned with you in hopes of you going after what you've always wanted!
I'm not saying it will be easy -- but damn is it worth it!
A few more things to help us get to know each other a little better, shall we?!
I'll go first...
I'm a lover of disco + doo-wop, Frank Sinatra + Frankie Valli. And, yes, I believe I was born in the wrong decade. Saturday Night Fever anyone?!
Top 3 favorite movies: Goodfellas, Selena + Pretty Woman.
I'm a Leo sun sign, Sag rising + Virgo moon sign, ya feel me?!
I have heliophilia, which is a fancy way of saying I love/need the sun/sunlight. Panic attacks ensue if I'm in darkness too long. JK, but not really.
I believe coconut oil can cure just about anything.
I am tone deaf...or so I've been told. I do a mean Cher impersonation........but no one will ever hear it.
I'm an only child + can easily entertain myself with some self-development books or casual conversation in the mirror.
My idea of the perfect date is August 22nd, because its hot + humid here in Jersey...just the way I like it anndddd it also happens to be my birthday...
I love fitness classes, brunch, wine + good company, in a solid pair of yoga pants.
I'm a HUGE Bruce Springsteen fan. Did I mention I was from Jersey?!
- I genuinely love to cook + entertain people. Life is lived through relationships + they are my most prized possessions.
When I'm not working one-on-one with incredible women ready to kick-ass + take names, you can find me at the Jersey Shore during the summer months + rolled up in a ball during the winter. Totally kidding. Really though, you can find me leading a fitness class, catching up over great food + wine with friends or hosting events in my area for badass boss babes like yourself!

peep my favorite quote here:
"I've been driven all my life by a spirit of adventure and a criminal level of optimism. I believed in my dreams because they were my only option. The people who make it to the top are addicted to their calling. You have to honor the gift God has given you. The people who get the call are the ones who'd be doing whatever it is they love, even if they weren't being paid."
