Meet Our Event Organizers
Kendra dreamed of coming to NYC and landing a glamorous job in fashion. Instead, she became a technology geek and spent her days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Nevertheless, Kendra channeled her love of stilettos and the finer things in life into a fashion and lifestyle blog, Closet Confections. This side project quickly grew into a loyal readership base and resulted in numerous collaborations with national brands such as Lenovo, Marriott, Dove, Target, and IBM. The experience also prompted her to start a new career as the Founder and Chief Marketing Strategist at Ideazio, Inc., where she works with companies to develop and implement customized digital marketing solutions that deliver real results.
