Kendra Canty

Senior Account Manager

Kendra brings a multifaceted set of experiences to her role as a Project Manager at Unite Us.
Unite Us often notes that a patient’s health is due largely to circumstances outside of the four walls of a doctor’s office. After graduating from Kansas State University with a degree in Secondary Education, Kendra found that, in her time as a high-school English teacher, the same concept held true for her students. Children whose social needs weren’t being met outside the four walls of the classroom were generally not thriving or succeeding in the classroom. The health-and-social-services landscape was not easy for her students or their families to navigate.
She became more deeply familiar with the fragmented nature of the social services terrain as her husband and his peers transitioned out of the military, at which time Kendra had transitioned to writing and editing part-time while she raised her small children. Fast forward a few years after a move to DC and a career transition to program management, and Kendra couldn’t be more thrilled to have joined Unite Us as Project Manager for the Mid-Atlantic States. She incorporates the knowledge and skills she’s learned as a teacher, editor and program management consultant to her role. She’s happy to be part of a mission-driven team that’s so passionate about ensuring all people have access to health and social services that will help them thrive and succeed. In her friend time, you’ll likely find Kendra spending time with her family, practicing yoga, taking long walks and hikes, or drinking coffee while talking with her sister.

If she could choose three famous best friends, they’d be Barack Obama, Jennifer Garner, and Angelina Jolie.
