Dr. Kennedy lives in North Aurora with her husband, Michael, who is an optometrist in Elgin. They have two children that keep them busy: a son Brendan, and a daughter Grace that they welcomed into the family in March of 2018. When she is not at Orchard Road, Dr. Kennedy enjoys traveling (Hawaii is a favorite), rooting for the Blackhawks, and gardening. She also loves reading and is in a book club.
