Kendall has graduate degrees in Government/Political Philosophy, Theology, and Social Work.

She also worked at a shipyard in Seattle, WA and for a custom homebuilder in Charlottesville, VA. Kendall and Jason moved to the area from Boston, when Jason became head of the History Department at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan, CT. New to the vestry, Kendall looks forward to learning from and working with longer term members of St. Mark’s to continue to grow its welcoming faith community. 


Grace Gibbons

Grace was elected to the Vestry in 2015; her husband Rob, a lawyer, has also served as a Vestry member. Grace, Rob, and their two daughters, Devon and Kendal, joined St. Mark’s in 2006. Devon, a college student, was confirmed at St. Mark’s in 2008 and Kendal, a middle-schooler, in 2015. Formerly, they were members of the Roman Catholic faith, but were in search of a more open and inclusive Christian church. They immediately felt that sense of community at St. Mark’s. Grace, who has a bachelor’s degree in history and worked for several years in the healthcare industry, began her education in landscape and floral design. She is now co-owner of a floral and landscape design company, GracefullyDone-NY, in Chappaqua. She is an active member of the Flower Guild and volunteers for many different activities at St. Mark’s.

Kisco food pantry, Christmas gourmet booth and greens, the rummage sale, and ushering. She and her husband, David, have one son, Alexander, who was baptized and confirmed at St. Marks. After working in the insurance industry for 25 years and earning her Master’s degree in adult education and instructional design, Audrey is now a stay-at-home mom and author of a nonfiction book, “Divine Fate.”   She looks forward to using both business and writing skills in her new vestry position.
