Kendra Baker graduated with a degree in Communications from West Virginia University and has utilized what she learned about communicating ever since. Kendra is someone that “sweats the small stuff,” which has come in handy in the Production Department. She constantly rechecks details to ensure that projects will run smoothly, on time, and on budget.
She started her career at Edge in the Education Department, working hands-on with new and established voice over actors. This experience has helped her understand and respect voice over from both a client and a talent perspective.
Kendra currently lives in Washington, DC, with her husband. She was born and raised in a small town below Pittsburgh, PA. She also spent almost eight years in Toronto, so she has a great love for our northern neighbors, just not their winter temperatures. When she is not working, she likes to hang out with family and friends and is obsessed with home design. She loves decorating rooms for herself and others and is constantly switching things around or thinking about her next project.

Director of Finance
One day shy of her eighteenth birthday, Sara Huber made her way across the Hudson River from New Jersey and settled into the place she always knew she was meant to be. After graduating from NYU with a dual major in Economics and Journalism, Sara began a career in the fashion industry, working alongside a then-unknown designer, learning how to build an empire from the ground up. Through an eclectic resume of other roles, Sara learned the ins and outs of bookkeeping, tax filing, international logistics, operations and how to source just about anything. Replying to a temp ad one day, Sara was sent from the agency directly to meet with Edge Studio Managing Director Andrew Warner on site, then invited back to meet owner and founder David Goldberg the following day. Proving she was meant to be a part of the team, she received a call with an offer just under 50 hours after submitting her resume. Two months later, she became a permanent member of the Edge family.
As perhaps the sole Edge Studio employee without a performance background, the only chance of catching Sara on television will be if she receives an invitation to compete on Jeopardy! Until then, Sara Huber enjoys doing the New York Times crossword puzzle (only on Saturdays) and traveling around the world, from Finland to Fiji to France.
