Prior to WestJet, she held finance and accounting positions at a semiconductor manufacturer in California. Born in Hong Kong, Candice grew up in Vancouver, Toronto and England. She came to Calgary for university and launched her career here at a public accounting firm.
Candice brings to Benevity a passion for causes looking out for the welfare of children. She admits to being just a (tiny) bit competitive when she plays board games and is a big believer in taking your work seriously, but not yourself. She’s the proud mom of two teenage boys and loves the outdoors. Her favorite place in the world is Banff National Park.
