What are you Thankful for this Year?


‘Tis the season to reflect on the year and think about all we’re thankful for. Here at KAI Partners, our staff has much for which to be grateful. We asked them to share with us what they are saying ‘thank you’ for this year.

“I am thankful for the hard work and commitment of our KAI Partners team in support of each other, our clients and partners, and our community.” – David Kendall, President/CEO

“I am certainly thankful for the KAI Partners team and the wonderful human beings you are at your core. I wish only the best for each and every one.” – Julie Kendall, Executive Vice President/Managing Director

“I am thankful for friends and family who love me even when I am not lovable. For my health, a roof over my head, food, a job I love, and all of the things so many do not have. I am thankful for being alive to see another beautiful day. I am thankful for some amazing business partnerships that help me grow and continue learning—and for some of those that have turned into amazing friendships, as well. And, last but not least, I am thankful for CrossFit, wine, peanut butter, and pizza!” – Elizabeth Long, Executive Consultant, Organizational Change Management & Training

“I am a fortunate man … I am a fortunate man with a loving family and loyal friends. I am a fortunate man with a full belly and free time to spend. I am a fortunate man with a strong back and energy to spare. I am a fortunate man truly blessed, and so thankfully aware.” – Stephen Alfano, Executive Consultant, Marketing Communications & Organizational Change Management

“I am thankful I have a boss who listens and considers all of my suggestions.. I’m also thankful for a husband who, for better or crazy, takes me for who I am.” – Angela Darchuk, Administrative Services Manager

“There are so many things to be thankful for: Health, friends who love and accept me as I am (that’s always a big one), family, wine, etc. I am also so very thankful for books! Books provide an escape to a new and exciting world; knowledge in a new subject; the unleashing of imaginations; the experience of joy, happiness, love, sadness, and peace. I love going to a bookstore and seeing all of the amazing treasures to behold. There are so many endless choices, each with their own special gift to share. Because of books, I have lived a thousand lives and I would not trade them for anything!” – Melissa McManus, Research Analyst

“I am thankful to live in a world where I am free to be me and where I can raise my daughter to be unapologetically herself, as well. I am also thankful for stuffing, gravy, and wine.” – Sarah Walsh, Executive Consultant, Communications

“I am thankful for my health, my friends, and my family—including my KAI Partners family!” – Denise Larcade, Executive Consultant

“I am thankful for new beginnings. I am thankful for life even with its imperfections. I am thankful for healing because I am finally beginning to feel like myself again after encountering loss. I am thankful for acceptance. I am most thankful for family and friends.” – Jamie Spanger, Project Manager

“I’m thankful for friends and family. I’m thankful that I can continue to work and grow past middle age, and that I have had the opportunities to raise my family in freedom and prosperity. I realize that not all people can do that, even in our own country, and I’m very thankful that I have the opportunity to change that. I’m thankful that I have so much in life to look forward to! And, I’m very grateful for the Thanksgiving chefs who enjoy doing the cooking for the whole family!” – Judith Phelps, Executive Consultant

I’m thankful for the wonderful team that we’re assembling am looking forward to the new year together!” – Jason Hardi, Senior Project Advisor

“I’m grateful for those moments when I can pay it forward, only looking backward long enough to express gratitude to those who paved my way. I’m grateful for this upcoming holiday featuring my favorite foods—carbohydrates and turkey, and with my favorite people—friends and family.” – Diane Dean-Epps, Communications Specialist

The KAI Partners team wishes you and yours a happy, healthy, and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday.
