About the Owner: Kendall Shiffler
As an entrepreneur and member of the hyper-connected Generation Y, Kendall understands the importance and value in maintaining a strong online presence.
With a journalist for a mom, Kendall was exposed to the internet at an early age. She became interested in graphic design and websites in middle school. Wanting to share her work with the world, she taught herself HTML and developed her first website. It was a hobby that was sustained but always peripheral until her last year of college when she got a job managing the website for the University of Mississippi Croft Institute of International Studies.
After realizing her once-hobby could be a profitable revenue source (that could help keep her traveling itch in-check), she started her own website consulting business. Design by Kendall was founded in August 2006 on the idea that great web design does not have to cost you a fortune.
In September 2009, Kendall made her passion for web design and blogging a career, accepting a job as a full-time blogger and social media marketing associate for Dallas-based real estate development company PegasusAblon. Kendall markets the company’s Lower Oak Lawn project utilizing social media and traditional marketing strategies and authors LowerOakLawn.com, a blog dedicated to life in the Dallas Design District. Kendall also helps coordinate PegasusAblon’s corporate marketing efforts.
When not at work or designing websites, Kendall enjoys playing tennis, volunteering with her sorority alumnae club, hosting parties, traveling and spending time with her friends and family. Kendall also writes a successful entertaining blog, “Kendall’s Entertaining Life” that chronicles her interest in entertaining, decorating and enjoying life.
Kendall is a 2007 graduate, summa cum laude, of the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and International Studies.
