KENDRA MANESS | Editor / Publisher
Kendra Maness was born and raised in Slidell, attending Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary, Salmen and Slidell high schools. She spent much of her career in the pet industry as a boarding and grooming facility owner as well as a rescuer. After a 2-year battle with cancer, Kendra changed direction, emerging with revitalized energy and passion for life. Kendra was always a writer, so she combined her passion for art, literature and her hometown of Slidell to start Slidell Magazine in June 2010.
Since that time, Kendra has immersed herself in EVERYTHING Slidell. She is an active and vocal community advocate, volunteering for numerous charities and serving on multiple boards. You can find Kendra at just about every Slidell event, camera in hand, enjoying the beautiful community she lives in and loves.
