Dr. Kendall joined the Speech and Hearing Sciences Department in 2008.  Her research platform focuses on rehabilitation of language disorders following stroke and in particular, understanding the theoretical relationship between phonology (sounds) and word retrieval deficits. Also, in her role as a scholar-administrator, she seeks to use the social location of department chair to work towards health disparities by addressing systems of oppression in the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). She also works with the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho, Ghana to strengthen their academic program in the rehabilitation sciences.
