Her substitute teaching experience offers a unique perspective
Candy has learned the importance of actively listening, asking meaningful questions, and then retelling a person’s story in an unbiased and captivating way.
Working in a newsroom also gave Candy experience in handling breaking news such as the aftermath of 9/11 and presidential election nights. These situations taught her how to communicate key details while working on tight deadlines.
In another line of work as a substitute teacher, Candy has developed her humor and patience, as well as a deeper understanding of the school system. Her background gives her perspective into the challenges and concerns of parents, educators and administrators.
She wants to bring the skills she learned in the newsroom and classroom to Laura Bishop Communications. Candy is excited to start a new adventure in public relations. She looks forward to building relationships and experiencing new opportunities.
