Kendall says, “I enjoy treating a variety of patients, though balance patients are of special interest to me.” She also enjoys working with high level athletes a passion that comes from her own experience as a competitive dancer in high school. During these year Kendall received physical therapy after a surgery was done to repair her foot and her enthusiasm for the physical therapy profession began.

Kendall wants “to help people return to their lives pre-illness/injury” just as she was able to due after the wonderful treatment she received.
