Candace started in senior care at the age of 14 working at a facility in Burien, WA. She worked after school as a dishwasher and at the age of 16 started cooking on weekends. She cared for her grandparents for a year until her grandfather passed and her grandmother took to traveling.
Candace ventured many avenues through the years and took a Pharmacy Technician course at Renton Technical College in her early 20’s. She worked for Group Health for almost 3 years filling senior community prescription punch cards. She spent 10+ years in the print industry with a company in Bellevue.
She always came back to senior care. “It’s where I feel “at home”. I love what our seniors have to offer; history, wisdom, joy and sometimes they trust us enough to share their sadness. I feel very blessed to have this opportunity to work with such fascinating people.”
