Candice began working in the early childhood field in 2000. She was trained in the Reggio Emilia approach to education and taught preschool and kindergarten for many years.
After having her first son, she took a three year break from the classroom to be home with him. She was introduced to the Waldorf curriculum when she enrolled her son in a non-profit Waldorf school in 2014. She quickly fell in love and only a few weeks later was enrolled in Waldorf training to begin teaching an early childhood class. Soon thereafter, her passion for nutrition was highlighted and she took on the additional role as Nutritional Consultant for the school. This role allowed her to create, plan, purchase, and supply nutrient dense snack menus for all grades and work directly with small, local farms.
After meeting with the WECAN (Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America) Accreditation Board, she was asked to be the accreditation representative of the school. In this position, Candice was held responsible for the safety and compliance of the entire school grounds, as well as overseeing the curriculum, and teacher mentoring. Her successful work as the WECAN representative led to her nomination and appointment to the Board of Directors.
