In 2010 Kendall found the Paleo diet. This was the final piece of the puzzle for her after a decade of primal style parenting. She learned that we can live healthier and happier lives by adapting principles from our hunter-gatherer ancestors into our 21st century lives. She believes that an ancestral template for nutrition and lifestyle is crucial to opening up the channels for healing past trauma and balancing our modern day existence.
For 16 years Kendall worked as an on-air radio personality, but her heart was always seeking a career that would fulfill her and allow her to share how she’ve overcome many challenges in life. From childhood trauma, addiction, alcoholism, toxic relationships, mental health imbalance, body image issues, disordered eating, sugar addiction, and self-loathing.
In 2012, Kendall decided to embark on a new journey and studied with the Nutritional Therapy Association and created a practice dedicated to helping people live a holistic life that encompasses healthy eating practices, lifestyle, mindfulness, and empowerment. Using the experience from two decades as a radio personality and voice actor, she took her love of public speaking to the next level and started sharing her journey and expertise as a motivational speaker. In her talks, she speaks about recovering perfectionism, letting go of control and shame, finding balance, and creating a fulfilled, peaceful life.
In addition to Kendall’s work in the Ancestral Health community, she spent time working in local food policy where she coordinated school gardens with their school district, another passion of hers. If you’re interested in starting school gardens or learning more about how to teach children about healthy food in your school district, please check out the work she have done in that field here.
