Adele Kendra is the Administrative Assistant with Van Pelt Wealth Advisors, providing proactive client service and support, scheduling meetings, and preparing and processing client documentation. A member of the team since 2011, she ensures the firm runs smoothly and helps Roger with any special projects or requests. She is often the first person clients meet in the office or speak with on the phone, and she enjoys interacting with clients, building relationships with them, and working with them for many years.
Before joining Van Pelt Wealth Advisors, Adele was the Community Relationship Manager and Grant Writer for Pearl S. Buck International, where she was responsible for planning events, giving presentations, and writing grants. She also worked at Precision Solutions, Inc. as the HR and Accounting Manager. While it was initially meant to be a temporary position as a favor to her husband who owns the company, she ended up working there for 17 years. She received her bachelor’s degree in sociology from Arcadia University, and has a background in accounting and business.
Outside of the office, Adele enjoys spending time with her husband, their two grown children, and friends. Passionate about traveling, she enjoys learning about other cultures and history and experiencing new adventures. When she isn’t hiking, biking, or kayaking with her husband, she enjoys yoga, Pilates, reading, and gardening.
