One of Candace’s current students writes, “"With her years of experience and the diversity of students she has worked with, Candace is a true professional; she is a careful and perceptive listener whose thoughtfulness is reflected in her incredible ability to balance the students' character, the family's needs, as well as individual colleges' preferences. Most importantly, Candace loves to do what she does best and genuinely strives to help the student find his or her best path for the future."
