Candace is an Atlanta native and self-proclaimed "dot connector" with an infectious entrepreneurial spirit. Her well-rounded professional background is complemented by her Ivy League educational experiences and her creative personal endeavors. Over the last 3-5 years, she has specifically focused on strategic partnerships and innovation within Atlanta's tech startup community.
In 2014, Candace was part of the inaugural team to launch General Assembly's campus inside of Ponce City Market. Her knowledge of student success, diversity initiatives and external partnerships have made a significant impact on GA's first year in the South.
Recently, WeCycle Atlanta honored Candace as a "2015 DoGooder" alongside Atlanta City Council President, Ceasar Mitchell. Her passion for increasing the presence of minorities and women in the tech industry is evident in her efforts at General Assembly and abroad.
When she's not in the office, you can find Candace connecting with her colleagues at Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce events or enjoying a good bourbon at her favorite restaurants.
