Kendra DeMoura

Operations Director:

Kendra was born in southeastern Massachusetts and attended Emerson College in Boston. Shortly after graduating with her Bachelor of Arts in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, she relocated to California, first settling in San Francisco and later Oakland. After working in the publishing industry for a couple years, she decided to go back to school full time to study her hobby and passion: cooking. After earning an Associate of Science degree in Culinary Arts from City College of San Francisco, she worked in the busy, competitive Oakland restaurant scene before deciding to unite her passion for writing and cuisine and launch a food blog. In 2016, she, her husband, and their two adorable rescue terriers decided it was time for a new adventure and relocated to Savannah. Kendra is a proud member of the Junior League of Savannah. In her spare time, she enjoys reading fiction, searching for unique midcentury furniture, taking barre classes, and—rather obviously—cooking.
