A second-generation US Navy veteran and native of Florida, presently living in Fanning Springs, Candace enjoys teaching middle school students Social Studies at Nature Coast Middle School. Within the realm of teaching, teaching drama, and watching her students blossom on stage, she finds especially satisfying. A good time for Candace includes reading a good book, exploring nature with her family, or floating on an inner tube with her curious daughter, Audrey. She likes to experiment, usually successfully, on her husband, Scott, by cooking new and exciting dishes full of color and flavor – and typically prefers to do so by “feel” rather than by recipe. Candace loves engaging people and most find her quirky gregariousness and hospitality welcoming.
