Candice’s passion has always been helping individuals overcome systemic obstacles. The first portion of her career was spent consulting within the global software industry, where she worked for major corporations such as Saint-Gobain and SAP.
Wanting to deepen her ability to effect change in her clients, Candice earned a Professional Coach certificate from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and has been coaching C-Suite professionals since 2012.
In 2017, she embarked on a redirected career path and decided to start a program geared toward young adults who aged out of foster care. As Candice passionately worked to design a program that truly created sustainable outcomes, she researched and gained a deeper understanding of the trauma that often accompanies this overlooked and tragically underserved population. This dedication led to the development of a powerful curriculum that aligned with her desire to help her clients build lasting personal resilience.
Candice joined the Arizona Trauma Institute’s faculty in 2020 to expand upon and help develop a trauma and resilience life coach training program that offers professional opportunities to individuals who, like her, are passionate about healing the effects of trauma within their clients.
Candice has devoted her life to breaking the generational cycle of poverty, homelessness, and desperation that many people who have been through foster care experience. Through the development of social capital and resilience, Candice strives to ensure equal opportunities for people of all backgrounds and social statuses.
