Testimonials & Reviews

I have to say that you model the most wonderful mindset with your actions and words. It has been commented on by my staff. You are gracious and lovely and courageous and confident. I can only say that I hope that us working together gives me a little of your magic :-) Karin Paterson, Principal, Polaris Montessori Elementary, SD 57
I came to know Candice through mutual connections, most notably, through the son of Two Rivers Gallery’s Executive Director – now a teenager – he fondly remembered Candice visiting his classroom when he was in elementary school. The way he described her – she sounded like a super hero! Never before had he been so dazzled by singing and story-telling. With such a glowing review from a teenaged guy, I was thrilled when Candice agreed to contribute to our festival. Twyla Exner, Director of Public Programs Two Rivers Gallery
