As far as keynote conversations go, we are incredibly grateful for Amy Harrison, Chief Financial Officer, Kendal Corporation. Her story is inspiring, and exemplifies the glass ceilings we are breaking as women leaders. It leaves us with hope for the future. Some highlights from Amy:

  • Amy shared her experiences about making career decisions based on personal values and beliefs. And, how important it is to work for an organization and with colleagues that have shared values and beliefs.
  • We acknowledge that the last 8+ months have been incredibly challenging on those of us who are working from home; or more accurately…living at work. We are not alone.
  • We also acknowledge that while a great number of us are working from home, a great many of the leaders at providers have been practically living at work as they combat this virus on the front lines. We thank you all for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make.
  • Let’s keep the dialog going. 

Keynote Speaker

Amy Harrison
Chief Financial Officer
Kendal Corporation 

We are honored to welcome Amy as she shares her thoughts and perspective on her professional journey.

A certified public accountant and experienced finance executive, Amy has been an integral part of the Kendal Corporation family since 2011 as CFO for Collington, a Kendal-affiliated continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in suburban Washington, D.C. Amy was named Kendal’s CFO in 2016.

Following our dynamic keynote with Amy Harrison, we broke into smaller, more intimate group discussions  to share ideas and experiences. Discussions centered around navigating life in our socially distanced times. In keeping with the theme from the LeadingAge Annual Meeting, we shared Dr. Brené Brown’s message, 10 Guideposts for Wholehearted Living, as a foundation for our discussions.
