4-H clover Meet Lizz Kendall, Extension Educator

Hi! My Name is Lizz Kendall, and I am the Extension Educator for Blue Earth County. I live in St. Peter with my husband, Andrew, and 19-month-old daughter, Chloe. We have a golden doodle named Lucy and a rag doll cat named Alfie.

I love graphic design, drawing, singing and painting in my free time. I also love spending time with my family and friends. I was an elementary teacher for six years and a director of children, youth and family ministry director for two years. I love bringing my obsession of technology, graphic design and creativity to anything I do. My personality traits are enthusiastic, friendly, warm, encouraging and kind.
