Regional Development Planner


Candice joined the Region Five team in 2023 after gaining years of experience in the nonprofit sector contributing to community health and helping create areas where individuals and families can thrive. At R5DC, her expertise is leveraged as she contributes to building regional food systems, assists with Energy & Environment planning, and develops tools and resources that sustain and promote natural landscapes throughout our beautiful Northwoods region. 
Candice is honored to have achieved a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in public administration. In her downtime, Candice can be found tending to her Brainerd-based farm with her husband and two children, adding to their collection of crazy critters, and teaching others about the importance of incorporating nature into our daily lives.
