Hello, I'm Candice...
A 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 incredible Mom Stacy 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 than she 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.
I expanded my career in because I felt called to serve...
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 what I was doing mattered to me, but did it?
Yes, it was exciting, I was traveling the world, had plenty
of security, but sadly felt empty inside. I was impressed
with my "success" until I realized I was immersed in a toxic
environment that was far from collaborative, motivated by fear and
had me doing emergency handstands in my corner office.
I thrived on my connection to others
and wanted to focus on work that was authentic and that truly
mattered to me. After far too many years of
trepidation, a miscarriage, and a meditation
experience guiding me to “wellness”, I took the road less traveled
spread my wings and listened to my soul calling.
My biggest obstacles have become my most counted blessings...
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 Lennon 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 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 that the greatest gift my Mom 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 and to dedicate my life to supporting you on your own journey to Love YOU More was born.
I believe that our relationship to self, and how we value ourselves drives how we engage with every aspect of our lives, with our family, in our relationships, and in our careers. I believe there is a place in this world where committing to self love, accepting and loving our whole self is possible and I believe that self worth is a super power that when tapped into supports our growth, our dreams and our reality.
One of the greatest compliments I've ever been given is when I fall, I fall up...
Through deep emotional and spiritual work, trainings and certifications and my 20+ years of marketing, communications and business experience, I have been bless to work and study with some of the world’s leading practitioners in Psychology, Coaching, Self Development, Yoga & Meditation and continue to explore what is possible spiritually, mentally and physically. My background draws from a deep well of corporate, entrepreneurial and life experience, trial and error, success and failures. What was once a struggle and tumultuous relationship with my body and food is now a sense of discovery and empowerment, being in the right place with myself to find true love and marriage and having a baby at 46 has shown me that it's never too late to go after what you want in life. I have reinvented my career--twice, no longer look outside of myself to define who I am, continue to evolve, nurture my evolution and commitment to myself and all those around me
Learning to navigate from a place of love as opposed to fear has been one of the most impactful
lessons in my life.
My commitment is to share wisdom from where I’ve been, what I’ve learned and continue to learn and teach you
how to navigate from the most powerful place in the world, your heart center.
I look forward to supporting you on your quest to live a more compassionate, expansive and meaningful life.
