Candyce grew up in Seattle, Washington and graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. She moved to Orlando with her twin sister to pursue her dream of working for Disney. Candyce worked primarily at Wide World of Sports and runDisney during her time at Disney before she realized her passion was to work with animals. She pursued this passion by joining the team at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. During her 7 years at Pet Alliance, she held several roles including Customer Care Manager, Volunteer Manager, and Clinic Manager. She also adopted her dogs from Pet Alliance that are pictured here (Left to Right Tripel, Schooner, and Hops), two of which she rescued during two separate transport trips from St Thomas and Puerto Rico. In her down time she loves exploring breweries and restaurants, playing softball, going to the beach, going on adventures, and watching sports.
