Hello, I'm Candice...
A heart-centered entrepreneur, self worth advocate & empowerment coach, brand marketing strategist, certified yoga & meditation teacher, wife,
mama, and passionate optimist who navigates the world with an insatiable desire to love, learn, grow, and serve. For as long as I can remember, I’ve thrived on connection to myself and others, and have been incredibly curious about our human potential.
I am beyond excited to share my passion and experience
in personal development, spiritual growth,
communications and marketing to empower and guide you to access your self worth, step into your power, turn your greatest challenges into your most counted blessings and ignite your life and business.
I got it from my Mama..
Instilled in me from my Mama since day
one is an all knowing belief in myself and
appreciation for who I am. I was the apple
of her eye, we were the best of friends and
no one more proud of me then Stacy was.
She taught me to love myself and all those
around me with my whole heart.
She encouraged me to believe in myself,
taught me to celebrate everyday like it day
was my birthday and truly believed there
was nothing I couldn’t do. "You're worth it,",
"never settle," "marry your mother," and
"life is not a dress rehearsal" were things she
often said to me. And every time I said
I love you, she said I love you more!
I am here for you today, because of all the incredible ways she was there for me and even though self love and self care wasn't her priority, it is mine because of the way she loved me and taught me to love myself.
I walked away from a successful career in Corporate because I knew there was something more out there for me...
After 20+ years of experience in communication and marketing,
a degree from UC Berkeley, and a lifelong relentless passion for personal
and spiritual growth I realized my prestigious positions at
powerhouse agencies driving campaigns for some of the
largest brands and recording artists in the world looked great on
paper but was far from feeding my soul. From the outside,
I was living the dream, yet the truth was I was playing small,
not listening to my gut
and time and time again I was telling myself that
wearing my heart on my sleeve had no place in business.
Yes, I was traveling the world, had plenty of status and security,
but sadly felt empty inside.
I was impressed with my "success" until I realized I was immersed in
a toxic environment and culture that had me doing
emergency headstands in my corner office, which was far from
encouraging and sadly motivated by fear. After far too many years of
trepidation, a miscarriage, and an outer body meditation experience
where I heard a voice guiding me to “wellness” I listened to my
soul calling and took the road less traveled in search
of a deeper more meaningful existence.
My biggest obstacles have become my most counted blessings and yours can be too!
I had a 5 year fertility journey that opened me up to be more receptive, proved to me that age is just a number and that I was stronger than I was giving myself credit for. To say we were blessed with the birth of our baby girl Chloe is an understatement and I gave birth at the ripe age of 46. I have never experienced a greater,
sweeter love. When our daughter was
born the cycle of life became omnipresent and I
the joy of staying present and savoring precious moments
became a challenge as as at the same time I was
becoming a Mama, my Mom became very ill.
When Chloe was just 8 months old my life was again
forever changed as after a valiant battle for her life, we
lost my Mom to lung cancer. After her passing,
the incredible gift of motherhood took on a whole new
meaning. Something inside of me died, yet something
beautiful was awakened. I could suddenly feel my
Mom every time I embraced my daughter and I realized
The greatest gift my Mama ever gave me is my self worth...
and that needed to be celebrated and shared not only with my daughter but with the world. And so my commitment to love myself as fully as Stacy loved me, to lead by example and to dedicate my life to supporting you on your own journey to Love YOU More was born!
My deep yearning for human connection and empathic love for all those around me continues to evolve. I now know that wearing my heart on my sleeve is a badge of honor and I proudly bring it with me front and center into every personal and business relationship I have. I believe that there is a place in this world where accepting and loving your whole self drives how we interact and engage with every aspect of our life. I live it and you can too. No matter what your Dreams are or what is holding you back from realizing them, you have the potential to transform your life and contribute to changing our world.
One of the greatest compliments I've ever been given is when I fall, I fall up, this can become your story too
through deep emotional and spiritual work, my Yoga &
meditation practice, trainings and certifications and my
25 years of business experience, I have been bless to
study with some of the world’s leading practitioners in
Psychology, Coaching, Self Development,
Yoga & Meditation and continue to
explore what is possible mentally, physically
and spiritually. My background draws from a deep
well of corporate, entrepreneurial and life experience,
trial and error, success and failure,
it’s been ugly and it’s been glorious. What was once a
struggle and tumultuous relationship with my body
and food is now a sense of peace and empowerment,
being in the right place with myself to find the true love
and marriage I deserve and having a baby at 46
has shown me that my dreams can become a reality,
that it's never too late to go after what you want in life and that everything truly happens for a reason.
I have reinvented my career--twice,
no longer look outside of myself to define success, continue to evolve, and nurture my commitment to myself and
all those around me.
It has taken me several decades to get here and the journey has been humbling to say the least but alas, I’m exactly where I need to
be and here for you. Doing this work is a daily practice, it's challenging, sometimes scary but nourishing.
Learning to navigate from a place of love as opposed to fear has been one of the most difficult and most impactful lessons in my life.
Whether you’re here to live with more compassion for yourself, become a better Mother, or get out of your own way, live in your light and let life work for you , I can serve you. My commitment is to share my wisdom from where I’ve been, what I’ve learned, how I too continue to evolve and teach you how to navigate from the most powerful place in the world, your heart center. I hope this is just the beginning of our connection and look forward to supporting you on your quest to live a more compassionate, expansive and meaningful life.
LOVE YOU MORE xx
