Currently, Ms Kendra also serves on the Butchman Board of Directors.

The LA&M Fireside Chat Series is an interview series that is filmed live before an audience. The Fireside Chats are hosted by Douglas O’Keeffe and co-produced by O’Keeffe and Mistress Joanne Gaddy, and they are currently filmed by Christina Court for long-term preservation at LA&M.
