Kendra Kobler joins Delos with a diverse operational and business background in the hospitality, wellness, and spa industries. As a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, she has a passion for providing top-quality customer experiences and supporting healthy development behind hotels, resorts, and spas. She also spent time studying International Business Entrepreneurship in Copenhagen, Denmark, which ignited her interest in innovative wellness startups.
Before Delos, Kendra held a key position on the Brand and Communications team at Spafinder Wellness, Inc. As Project Manager of the 2015 Global Spa and Wellness Trends Forecast, she collaborated with the company’s top management and research team, and she presented the findings on a wellness tourism panel at the 2015 New York Times Travel Show. She also had the opportunity to get involved with the brand development of Spafinder’s sister think-tank, the Global Wellness Institute.
She has worked with three spa powerhouses: Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, WTS International, and the Washington Spa Alliance. In 2013, she was recognized for her leadership in spa education, and was the recipient of the International Spa Association’s Mary Tabacchi Scholarship.
Kendra looks forwards to taking an active role in the growth of healthy living in both hospitality and real estate.
