After graduation, Candace gained hands-on educational experience teaching in the classroom at two of the highest-rated high schools in the United States.
Currently, Candace works with school districts around the country to create custom strategies, textbooks, and lesson plans that promote and support each district’s education standards and objectives.

Online, Candace is an active member of the Mom Community. On Naturally Educational, she shares educational crafts and the latest ideas about education. Naturally Educational was recently featured in Ed, the magazine of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and, in its first year, was chosen as one of the Top 3 Education Blogs in the Bloggers’ Choice Awards, 2010. She is the co-editor of Mamanista.com, a popular parenting product review blog and has blogged professionally for LeapFrog’s community as the Baby and Toddler Expert and BabyCenter’s parenting blog.

While Candace’s B.A. from Yale University and M.Ed. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education prepared her for a career in education, she’s found that the best preparation for parenting is on the job training. She enjoys being able to spend her day with her children and volunteer locally, while contributing financially to her household, growing as a professional, and participating in the online mom community.
