Kendra went to school at the University of the Pacific, majoring in Vocal Performance. She prefers opera over pop and tennis over football (although give her a good San Francisco Giants game any day). Beach over mountains and tea over coffee.
She's married to Fletch and has 8 fun-loving children entrusted to her home.
She blogs and podcasts at HomeschoolingIRL, where she and Fletch tackle the not-so-pretty and the very good of homeschooling with humor and tongues in cheek.
Since 2006, it's been her passion and privilege to encourage other moms beginning their homeschool journeys with little ones underfoot.Personal Site
