Kendal Lee leads the Maryland EPN as Program Administrator, since September 2022.
Her education, leadership skills, and passion make her a natural fit for this role. Kendal is a BSN graduate from the University of MD School of Nursing. Her educational background and clinical experience with diverse patient populations have equipped her to provide patient education in health promotion, disease prevention, and emergency preparedness. Inspired by the fusion of health science and social innovation, Kendal served as an Innovation Fellow at The University of Maryland Baltimore’s (UMB) Graduate Research Innovation District (GRID). She brought health and social impact ideas to life by coordinating educational programming and providing the Baltimore community with accessible entrepreneurial resources. Kendal then served as a LeaderShape Fellow in the Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape Program. This role allowed her to combine innovation and leadership to solve community health problems and promote positive social change.
Kendal also has a personal connection to the homecare community, as she cared for her terminally ill father in their family home. As a caregiver, Kendal understands first-hand the close relationship among supportive services, including home health, private duty, and durable medical equipment providers. This direct experience has further shaped her desire to serve those in the home and community-based settings. Kendal believes that healthcare begins in the community and wellness starts with “WE.”
