Kendra Slugoski is a seasoned journalist with over a decade of experience at Global Edmonton.
Kendra came to Edmonton thinking the city would be a pit stop before moving on, but she quickly grew to love the city. The river valley, running trails and dog park are some of her favourite places to escape.
Kendra grew up in northern Manitoba. She was born in a small town called Snow Lake; her family eventually moved to Flin Flon (home of hockey great Bobby Clarke). Kendra tries to make the 11-hour drive to Flin Flon a couple times a year to visit, but travelling with children and a dog make for a long road trip!
Kendra completed her diploma at Assiniboine Community College and started her Broadcasting journey in Brandon, MB at the local news station (CKX) before moving to Global Saskatoon to become a reporter. She then moved to Calgary where she worked for a few years before deciding to take a year off to travel. During her year abroad she visited Australia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
Kendra is passionate about telling a compelling story. After nearly 15 years in the industry, it still amazes her how people open up their lives and share their personal experiences.
Outside of work Kendra tries to stay active. She loves running and spending time outdoors.
Kendra is married with two young boys who keep her busy before and after work hours.
