Candy is originally from Chicago, but moved to Panama City Beach in 1986. She definitely does not miss the snow! She’d rather sweep sand off her porch than shovel snow off her driveway. She has been working as a Director of Activities at a local resort in PCB for eleven years. While I’m still in transition, her co-workers at The Blake have been amazing. Everyone helps one another like family.

Candy loves working with seniors because it is so rewarding! She loves hearing their stories and sharing memories. She says that she is here to create more memories!

After work, she relaxes by writing, drawing and listening to music or creating it. She plays drums and is currently teaching herself how to play the piano.
