Kendall Rathunde

Senior Associate, Policy Innovation


Kendall is a Senior Associate under the Data, Policy, and Performance Innovation branch at the Sorenson Impact Center. She works primarily to support the Pritzker Children's Initiative.

After studying dance as an undergraduate student, Kendall coordinated afterschool programs for a Title I school in Salt Lake City. This experience sparked an interest in studying public systems, which led her to graduate school at the University of Utah where she earned a Master of Public Administration and a Master of Social Work with a child welfare concentration.

After diverse experiences in clinical social work, working for the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development, and most recently as a grant writer, Kendall is thrilled to work at the Sorenson Impact Center.
