More Information

After losing her job in the hotel industry to the COVID pandemic, Kenyon made a decision which defined her career. She took a job with Lysa Miller, who had just begun rebuilding her company into a digital branding consultancy for biotech companies.

Using her organizational and spreadsheet acumen from her hospitality management days, Kenyon took the lead on Ladybugz sales and operations, working extremely closely with Miller, the CEO. Within Kenyon’s two years on the leadership team, Ladybugz has grown to a seven-figure company. Harnessing the power of Greater Boston’s internationally renowned life sciences industry, Kenyon regularly works with biotech companies around the world to connect them with Ladybugz’s website design, social media strategy, and online branding. Kenyon is a mother and encourages a strong work-life balance at her company, working hybridly herself. Although she works in Hudson, she has lived in Worcester since she started at Clark University. She is a strong advocate of Central Massachusetts and has volunteered as a board member at the Worcester Jewish Community Center for 10 years. 

What will Central Mass. be like in 10 years? The arts and small business scenes will continue to grow and thrive, creating a unique Worcester flavor.

If you gave a keynote at a college graduation, what advice would you give? Take every professional development opportunity you can. Some will be better than others, just like your classes. Keep growing and learning.

Where do you hope to visit in the next 25 years? I would love to go back to Israel and spend more time exploring there. I also welcome the opportunity to do a European wine trip.
