Candy received her undergraduate degree in Humanities from Loyola Marymount University and her master’s degree in Counseling & Guidance from Cal Poly. Her concentration during her undergraduate studies was Philosophy and one of her favorite courses was an Environmental Ethics course because it helped her think more critically about her values and the world around her.
Her favorite part about advising is helping students with their academic plans and career goals while encouraging them to be autonomous, successful individuals. What she enjoys most is helping students feel more secure in their choices throughout college and walking away more confident than when they came in.
Candy is originally from New Jersey and made her way to California for college. She has lived in SoCal, Central Coast, and now the Bay Area! In her free time, she loves taking her three pups to the beach, hiking/spending time outdoors, and traveling to new places.
