Kenda Jones Waugh

2022 Fuel Your Dreams Award Winner - LA

Wine influencer, educator, and soon-to-be entrepreneur. 

I believe that wine shouldn’t be complicated or intimidating. Raised in New Orleans, I wasn’t exposed to wine at all. That all changed when the pandemic started. I now have WSET 1 & 2 certifications and am pursuing my WSET 3 certification. My ultimate goal is to open an organic, biodyamic wine store. 

This award will help me gain the specialized training needed to further my professional career in the wine industry. Winning the award will propel me to the next level in my education and professional goals.
