Education

Graduated from California State University, Fullerton, earning a B.A. in Sociology in 2007. Currently, she is attending graduate school at CSU Fullerton, seeking a masters degree in Gerontology. Candi is considering a career in administration of senior communities or doing senior advocacy at the city or state government level.

Background

Candi was a student aide with Ron Hastings at Irvine Valley's sister school, Saddleback for four years. She considers her work at Saddleback and IVC "the best job ever." She states that this experience gave her increased confidence in her abilities and led her to take on an internship at the Center for Successful Aging. Her experience with adapted physical education allowed her to lead other interns on exercises immediately and offer suggestions about techniques to her instructors by the end of the semester!

Interests

Candi's initial interest in special education and working with the physically and mentally disabled eventually lead to an interest in working with the geriatric population. Candi is very involved in the WeCare program giving talks to many groups throughout Orange County and is busy balancing a full work and school schedule as well as planning her wedding this spring.
