In her 50s Kendra Pipkin has been a wife, single parentage, & employee for over half her life. Now the medical professional turned model is lighting up while lifting up in front of & behind the camera.  For years now, Kendra has been an example of beauty & grace from the inside out. Serving others has always been a part of her DNA. She has worked in the realm of surgery services for well over 20 years. But in 2007, Kendra felt an itch that she just had to scratch.

Kendra’s true strength has been her dedication to uplifting others. She wanted to bring her own spin of beauty & grace to the world of lifestyle & fashion. Industries that have traditionally overlooked women of color that did not fit the mantra of a size 4 centerfold. She started with highlighting jewelry, expanding into other categories, such as beauty, home décor, & accessories. Regardless of the product, each item bears her unique mark of quality.  That’s when the vision of LA Vibe was born.

Kendra has gained a reputation for having a tremendous eye for detail and an unwavering commitment to excellence. She also uses her platform to help other women succeed in the business world. She strives tirelessly to ensure that women owned businesses get the notoriety & visual platform they deserve. One face at a time, One fashionista at a time- all with LA Vibe!  Kendra is a shining example of what it takes to turn dreams into reality, even when the odds seem insurmountable. With a heart full of grace, a natural eye for beauty, and a relentless determination to succeed, Kendra is proof that with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible.
