With over 15 years of experience in health and safety across the BC construction industry, Candice is passionate about improving the physical and mental health and safety of all workers in the industry.

As a mother, a community member, and a volunteer, Candice is kind-hearted and dedicated in her approach to all things in or outside of work.
