In 2002, Kendra Scott combined her love for fashion with her creative talents and began her own line of jewelry. Today, the Austin based designs of Kendra Scott Jewelry have found a home in her serene and sophisticated New York city showroom and can be found at top retailers such as Lord & Taylor, Henri Bendel and specialty boutiques around the globe. The line garners the attention of such magazines as In Style, O The Oprah Magazine, Town and Country, Glamour and Life & Style, all who regularly feature Kendra Scott Jewelry.
As Kendra continues to grow her company, she remains committed to the three philosophies that continue to direct its course: family, fashion and philanthropy. Kendra’s “family first” philosophy has always been a core value for her growing company. The birth of her two sons during the initial stages of her business influenced Kendra in creating a lifestyle company that is both flexible and fun.
The heart of Kendra Scott's business philosophy is in giving back to her community. Kendra Scott maintains her position on the board of LifeWorks, a non-profit that provides services to homeless and at-risk youth and their families, in Austin, Texas. Kendra also is a co-founder and co-chair of LEAP (LifeWorks Entrepreneurs & Professionals), a fundraising and networking organization that connects individuals interested in making a positive impact on the lives of those in need. With her enthusiasm and passion, Kendra is a keynote speaker on the national level for The American Heart Association’s Go Red Campaign for Women.
