Kendra Aucoin


Q: Who are you? Where are you from?
A: My name is Kendra and I’m from a small town right outside of Boston. I love yoga, reading, cooking and baking anything and everything. I’m passionate about throwing the absolute best dinner parties that everyone will remember.

Q: What’s your background? What did you do before Modulate?
A: I have a background in all things HR & office administration/management. I’ve been in the automotive industry, Property management, and 3D printing. I also spent some time in college as a criminal justice major, where I became passionate about police and prison reform.

Q: Why are you joining Modulate?
A: I’m joining Moduate because of the sense of belonging I felt since walking through the door. It’s clear that Modulate says exactly what they say they do. They work very hard to create the climate for the culture they say they have. I also learned very quickly how committed Modulate was to being as transparent as possible which immediately made me feel safe and trusted. Their mission to make online gaming safer is something that this world needs. Gaming is supposed to be fun and inclusive for everyone playing and I'm honored to be a part of that change that’s happening here at Modulate.

Q: What’s your ideal work environment? Any special strategies you use to stay effective?
A: My Ideal work environment is a space in which there is a strong sense of community and trust. All voices are encouraged to speak up and are heard with an open mind. I also believe that work life balance is essential for mental health. I appreciate that Modulate encourages time off, breaks, and even time to socialize with our team members as often as possible. Some strategies I use to stay effective are using my calendar for time management - Using time blocks for certain items. I also create a list every day of items that need to be completed and this helps me not forget anything, especially when I’m juggling so many different tasks.

Q: Tell us about something you must have in any culture you join?
A: Autonomy, and dedication to culture are non-negotiable for me. I want to be in an environment where I'm trusted to use my creativity and skills to the best of my ability. I also want to be in an environment where diversity is celebrated without tokenizing anyone.

Q: Who are you outside of work?
A: Outside of work I’m always looking for something new. My partner and I love going to new restaurants, drinking wine, and listening to music. I also love spending time with my daughter who has many hobbies - Gymnastics, painting, and LOVES to build things.

Q: What’s something you’re great at that few people realize?
A: I love to dance...Not sure how good I am though. :)

Q: Leave us with a fun tidbit - a favorite joke, a story from your past, an obscure riddle, whatever you like!
A: “Treat everyone you meet like God in drag.”
