Director of People, Strategy and Operations
Kendra spent many years bouncing between the coasts and a couple countries, but loves life back home in Colorado (even though she admits that San Francisco still has a piece of her heart…). You’ll often find her staring out the window at the mountains, which she enjoys almost as much as skiing down them. After HR roles in industries as varied as consulting, sporting goods and mining, Kendra is excited to be a part of Craftsy, which combines her passions for creativity, learning and helping people find their inspiration to achieve—whether personally or professionally.These days, her main creative outlet is the slow and steady process of writing a novel, but she hopes that Craftsy motivates her to pick back up some long lost habits (cross-stitch anyone?) or find a new diversion somewhere along the way.
Emma was born and raised in St Louis, Missouri. She is happy to talk about the St Louis Cardinals or the Mizzou Tigers anytime with you. She also would be happy to introduce you to the wonders of gooey butter cake and toasted raviolis (google them, you will not regret it).
After living in Los Angeles, California, Emma decided to make the move to Denver and embrace mountain life. Emma had previously been working for the wonderful company TOMS Shoes and there sparked the interest for start up companies that were making a difference and creating a great product that everyone can enjoy.
As part of the People team, Emma loves helping to make Craftsy one of the best companies to work for in Denver. When she is not working she can be found at the movies, watching a sports game, trying out a new micro brew or restaurant in Denver.
