My mission

Why I Do What I Do

Kendra has worked tirelessly to uncover an effective solutions-focused strategic business approach to helping facilitate much-needed change. She combined her public health education and background in pharmaceutical and medical sales with her nonprofit and charitable experiences and daily journey to live well to establish a smaller, yet effective, blueprint to help shift the healthcare paradigm. Kendra has advocated for and raised awareness on the importance of proper diagnosis, developed and implemented patient education and wellness programs, and worked to foster better patient/provider relationships through several publishing and media projects. Additionally, she’s coordinated professional education opportunities for healthcare providers that is focused on reputable and updated medical information, information on complementary and alternative strategies, and professional collaboration to improve patient care.

Kendra Neilsen Myles is a very special person. She has dedicated her life--her time, money and extensive knowledge--to helping the EDS community and beyond! I had lived my entire life with a debilitating condition with no support whatsoever. When I first attended a free EDS yoga and support group she led, I burst into tears due to love and support Kendra and her group bestowed upon me. Kendra personally attended to me that day, followed up with me in the coming days and weeks, and kept reaching out with support, information, and resources to help me. I am amazed at what Kendra accomplishes, driven solely by her passion to helping others. I highly recommend Kendra in whatever health, organizational, and support related endeavors she pursues.
