Elevate Aviation came from Kendra's passion for philanthropy and her desire to help women become strong, independent, and self sustainable. 

Kendra has been an Air Traffic Controller for 16 years at the Edmonton Area Control Center. During this time, she has noticed the lack of female presence in the industry, which spurred the formation of Elevate.

In addition, Kendra enjoys spending time with her spouse Corey, her 4 children and her grandson. She enjoys travelling, biking and fitness. Kendra is also the founder of another non-profit organization, called Changing Stories, and is involved in a number of local activities including the Welcome Home Program and being a volunteer producer for Shaw TV. 

As a Global Woman of Vision recipient, Kendra is inspired to continue her vision of empowering women and changing the statistics in the aviation industry.
