Kendra DePinto

Writer and Advocate

Kendra lives in Phoenix, AZ with her partner John, their two rescue dogs, and more houseplants than she can count.  Since retiring from the restaurant industry, she has found herself loudly and proudly advocating for everyone who lives with chronic illness or disability.  She is passionate about sharing the vulnerable parts of her life in an effort to remind others (and herself) that they are not alone.  With John’s help, she owns and operates Sonoran Heat, a small-batch hot sauce company.  In her free time, she enjoys cooking, crocheting, reading, and leisurely outdoor activities.
