Kendra focuses her practice on probate, elder law and Medicaid planning. While a law student, she completed her externship with Rutkowski Law Firm and then continued on as a Law Clerk. After being admitted to practice in March of 2018, Kendra accepted an offer to become an attorney at the firm. Her colleagues and clients are glad she did!

Kendra obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Albion College, with a Spanish and Economics double minor. After her undergraduate studies, Kendra received an honors scholarship to attend Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School. She was the Senior Articles Editor for the school’s Law Journal of Clinical and Practical Law, and she graduated with honors.

Before attending law school, Kendra worked in an assisted living facility. The patients she assisted were in the latter stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. This experience gives her an understating of exactly what our elder law clients and their families are going through. Kendra derives a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction from solving the complex problems associated with obtaining Medicaid assistance on behalf of seniors and their loved ones.

Kendra grew up in Davison. She and her husband live in Grand Blanc, together with their son and a Golden Retriever. When Kendra is not in the office, she likes to spend her time with her family. She enjoys baking and experimenting with new recipes. She also likes to watch British television, play video games, read historical fiction and sew. An accomplished seamstress, Kendra worked for the theater costume department when she attended Albion, making clothing for the department’s performances.
