About Kendra

“Kendra is a passionate food enthusiast and lifestyle blogger based in Santa Cruz. As a real estate agent by day, she navigates the vibrant Santa Cruz real estate scene, but her true passion lies in creating delicious recipes and hosting unforgettable gatherings in the midst of the stunning Redwood social scene.

Welcome to the world of creation and inspiration!

I’m Kendra Thompson, residing in the beautiful region of Northern California, and my passion lies in the art of creating. Life, to me, is a series of exciting projects, and honestly, who can resist working on multiple ventures simultaneously!

There’s so much that ignites my creativity: crafting delightful recipes, diving into various craft projects, enjoying laughter that makes my stomach ache, cherishing quality moments with my family, and getting my hands dirty while tending to our garden (I also take immense pleasure in designing gardens for others). The world of home and landscape design is another realm where I find immense joy, as it encompasses everything necessary to transform a house into a true home.

Allow me to share a little glimpse of my background: My journey began in a small Southern California town before embarking on a new chapter in Santa Cruz at the age of 18. During my time at UC Santa Cruz, I pursued Legal Studies, which eventually led me to a fulfilling career as a Background Investigator in Silicon Valley. My work in this field evolved, and I found myself performing extensive background checks for individuals aspiring to join law enforcement—delving into people’s lives was a fascinating experience that I cherished deeply.

As fate would have it, I received a referral to join a renowned tech company’s Law Enforcement Response Team, where my love for this career, the company, and my colleagues flourished. It was during this time that I encountered an amazing lady who encouraged me to share my hobbies and passions with the world. Her words resonated with me, and in 2019, “Create with Kendra” came into existence.

In 2021, I was blessed with the arrival of our adorable son. Although I adored my career, I made the heartfelt decision to prioritize caring for our son full time—an undeniably rewarding choice for me. But, true to my nature of staying active and engaged, I pursued further education and obtained my Real Estate License. It felt like a natural fit, given my genuine affection for everything related to homes!

Today, I invite you to join me on this incredible journey at “Create with Kendra.” Together, we’ll delve into the joy of crafting recipes, gardening, engaging in home projects, and exploring the captivating world of real estate.

Your thoughts and feedback are invaluable to me, and I’m always thrilled to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or simply want to connect.

Thank you for being a part of this creative community—I’m excited to share this adventure with you!
