July Meeting Features Kendra Simpson
Kendra Simpson, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for the Mississippi Aquarium
The aquarium is preparing to make a splash on our coast and we’ll get all the details!
Join us for lunch in the private dining room in the buffet at the IP Casino Resort Spa on July 16.
Kendra Simpson is a Mississippi native and graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi. She moved to Pass Christian in 2002 and married her husband of 16 years in 2003. She has one son, Gus and 4 step-children.
In 2005 Kendra accepted a position at South Mississippi Regional Center assisting the IDDD Waiver program director to improve the organizational management of the program . She worked with the Department of Mental Health and Department of Medicaid to create a “paperless” reporting system that streamlined the certification process of individuals with disabilities. The work was rewarding, but mental health was not her calling, so after 7 years with SMRC, Kendra changed focus to pursue her passion for marketing and accepted a position at Mississippi Coast Coliseum where she was quickly promoted to Marketing Manager and then Director of Marketing and Entertainment. There she oversaw major fairs and music festivals, booked headline entertainment in the arena, managed the marketing department, secured sponsorships, managed media placement and mopped the floor when needed. Last fall, she became aware of the opportunity at Mississippi Aquarium. She joined the team as Vice President of Sales and Marketing and oversees ticketing, sales, special and hosted events and membership operations.
