Tell us a little about yourself and what you do.
I’m Kendra Y. Hill, President & CEO of IASA Consulting Group. I’m a native San Antonian who is a brand architect and Christian television producer.
What has motivated you or inspired you in your journey?
Definitely my peers and those around me. I am driven by the success of others. When I see someone set a goal and achieve their dream, it reminds me that I can do it too. I’m also inspired by my little sister; she’s sixteen years younger than me, and I know that I have to do everything in my power to be an inspiration to her.
What does IASA stand for?
IASA stands for I AM – San Antonio Consulting Group.
You’re involved in 3 different aspects of business…brand architecture, marketing and fundraising. Why those three and what’s the connection?
They are all things having to do with a person or organization’s image and exposure.
You’re also a Christian television producer, is there anything that you’ve produced that we would know?
Prophetic Encounters with Brian Carn airs this fall on the Daystar Network.
Are you married/children?
You’re very business savvy, do you see yourself as a fashion forward person?
ABSOLUTELY! Image is everything! Especially because I am a person who deals with the images of others. I try my best to ALWAYS look my best!
Do you have a signature style?
My style is professional/classic/sexy. I believe that you can be those three things at the same time. My look is timeless.
