Kendall Bergman joined the LIVESTRONG team in 2015. As Managing Director of Mission Operations, she oversees all of the organization’s mission programs, including LIVESTRONG’s navigation and fertility services, the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, the programmatic relationship with the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes, LIVESTRONG at School, the LIVESTRONG Leader program, along with ensuring that organizational and programmatic messaging are aligned with our mission focus and imperatives.
Prior to working at LIVESTRONG, Kendall spent close to a decade at Susan G. Komen global headquarters in Dallas. During her time at Komen she successfully oversaw the strategic development, management and logistical functions of a foundation grants portfolio totaling more than $60 million. While working on the strategic programs and partnerships team she worked directly with the development team to favorably solicit budget-relieving funds from key partners allowing the organization to implement, develop and execute on essential programming and expand on patient and research advocate education and training activities and opportunities. In addition, she successfully grew the volunteer base of Komen’s research advocate program to 200 members from 2008 through 2015.
In her spare time Kendall enjoys reading, watching reruns of The Office and Parks and Recreation, practicing gratitude and mindfulness, stretching her legs in the hills of West Austin, and spending time with friends, family and her dog, Sunny.
