Candace is a member of the Newton County and Indiana State (member, Young Lawyers Section, 2010-13; graduate, Leadership Development Academy, 2012) bar associations. She is also active with the Kentland Rotary Club, a Board Member of the Jasper Newton Foundation, Inc. and a Member of the South Newton School Corporation Board.
Why bar association involvement: Frankly, I truly enjoy my membership and colleagues. It is being part of something that has meaning within our profession and makes a difference. It is the bigger picture. All the resources and benefits are great and a plus to my practice, but the importance comes from the intangible benefits that are more difficult to describe.
If not a lawyer: I would still be an entrepreneur, one with more time for many other ventures.
Fav vacation spot: Disney World!
Top of my bucket list: sleep, visit all 50 capitals and give away a million dollars.
