Assistant Program Director, AmeriCorps Field Program
Organized. Committed. Disciplined.
Candice supports AmeriCorps Field Programs and staff which includes program planning and training event coordination; AmeriCorps grant writing, reporting, monitoring and compliance; data tracking; and program evaluation for continuous program improvement. Candice excels at anything that requires being type A and is energized by creating processes and realizing efficiencies.
She joined Conservation Corps Minnesota in 2004 as an AmeriCorps field member then served as an AmeriCorps VISTA in 2005, starting on staff in 2006. Candice holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and business management from the University of St. Thomas.
Candice’s favorite part about being a Corps staffer is the opportunity to pay it forward. She greatly enjoyed her experience as an AmeriCorps Field Program Crew Member in 2004, the friends made, the skills gained, and the resources restored, and finds fulfillment in improving the program/maintaining the experience for future Conservation Corps members.
