Employee Spotlight: Kendel Lloyd

Meet Kendel Lloyd, one of Anthem's Account Coordinators, featured this week in our Employee Spotlight series.

Q: Please give me a description of what your position entails at Anthem Branding.

A: I establish relationships with clients to help make unique, memorable branded items to gift or use within their company.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Besides the fact that each day is different, being able to help our client’s visions come to life in the custom merchandise they give out is awesome. Also, seeing the items that we helped to produce out in the world is such a cool experience. I am able to express my creativity and think outside of the box on a daily basis.

Who had the most influence over you?

I think the saying, “it takes a village” is more than correct when it comes to noting all of the amazing people who have influenced me. But without a doubt, my mom, Jill Lloyd, has had been the most impactful. She is the embodiment of a strong woman.

I feel incredibly lucky every day to say that my superhero, my role model, my biggest cheerleader, one of my best friends and my mom happen to be the same person. She truly is Wonder Woman and I’m grateful to continue to be in her influence.

What color best represents your personality and how does that color make you feel?

Powder Blue represents my bubbly, go with the flow type of personality. This is not only my eye color but also my VW convertible’s color.

How would your best friends or family describe you in three words?

Ever the optimist.

What is your favorite activity to do locally and why?

Colorado is the perfect place for a TripAdvisor worthy list of local favorite activities. Sunrise hikes in summer, skiing in Breckenridge during winter, and sampling local Colorado-brewed beer, I’m a proud Colorado native and embrace all there is to do in our beautiful state.

What is your favorite local restaurant?

Hillstone in Cherry Creek. Pineapple steak is life (Refer to my secret talent).

Best concert you have ever attended?

Florence + the Machine. Her songs are not only amazing, but the way she performs on stage constantly dancing makes you feel like you are in another world.

Where’s your favorite place in the world?

Anywhere the sand meets the water and the sun shines bright.

Secret talent?

Grilling the perfect steak. But the real talent comes in my ability to make it disappear fast!
