Having grown up around the Enterprise business, Kindle officially began her journey when she interned for Enterprise Rent-A-Car while studying at the University of Tulsa. After graduation, she joined the organization full-time in various management roles where she grasped and experienced the importance of Enterprise’s signature customer service.
In 2003, Kindle shifted her focus to overseeing national insurance accounts, which proved to be an important stepping stone to later support Enterprise’s regional subsidiaries in the southeast United States as assistant vice president of rental in 2007.
In 2010, Kindle pursued her passion for philanthropy and community-building across the St. Louis area. She served as secretary for the Crawford Taylor Foundation, the Taylor family’s philanthropic foundation, and was then promoted to vice president and executive director of the Foundation in 2013. Since then, Kindle led the Foundation board in reviewing grant applications for local community nonprofits identified by Enterprise, National and Alamo employees.
Kindle was promoted to senior vice president in 2017 and became president of the Foundation in 2019. In that time, she has continued to oversee the Foundation’s board of trustees, working alongside Enterprise corporate officers and general managers in considering charitable requests.
Kindle is a board member for SSM Health and Greater St. Louis Inc. She also continues to make history in her hometown as part of the first majority female-owned club in Major League Soccer (MLS) history: St. Louis CITY SC. Kindle serves as chief executive officer for the soccer club, which began play in 2023.
