Candice is a Houston native, raised on the southeast side in a neighborhood known as SouthPark. She is a mother of 3 beautiful children: Kennedy (14), Kadden (12), and Kingston (6). And yes, she does like the letter K.
After obtaining her associate degree in nursing in 2008 from Houston Community College, Candice returned to school to receive her BSN from The University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston. Candice has worked in Med-Surg, Telemetry, Intensive care (ICU), and currently clinical informatics (IT&S).
Candice loves to travel and becomes antsy if she stays in one place too long. She also loves coffee so much that the cashiers at Buccees know her by name. Recently she’s taken up yoga to increase her strength, muscle tone, and balance, so she can take one of those iconic photos of standing on her head on top of mountain in a beautiful pose.
On top of nursing and her hobbies, Candice is also the co-owner of Leaf360 LLC, a company that provides quality CBD products from Hemp. As an owner, she believes it is her responsibility to consistently stay up-to-date on changes in the industry that may affect her consumers, with safety and quality her number one priority.
As a registered nurse of 10 years, she recognizes that the current healthcare system could be improved in certain areas. Being a patient in this system, she began to find alternative means of treatment for her anxiety and depression. Through this research, her passion for advocacy work was ignited.
