Who I am

This blog has evolved over time. It started with me fighting to hold onto my old life. Then it became a journey to find myself. It’s evolving again.

This represents the Candace brand, right?

For the past couple of years, I’ve taken continuing education classes. First at the University of Washington and now at New York University. Each class has helped me narrow down what it is I really want to do. I started with Nutrition 101, then I went into intellectual property law, thinking I’d go to law school. Now I’ve fallen in love with my digital publishing classes, which sounds a lot like what I already do. Damn!

Several of these classes have challenged me to set goals and make a plan. Instead of just throwing ideas and big dreams out there. I’ve had to refocus and tailor my efforts to what I actually want to achieve. My class today really drove that point home. Our assignment is to create an entry point to our personal brand. This is something I desperately needed. My digital fingerprint has been all over the place. I even have two email addresses for different purposes. It was time to pull it all together and really figure out who I am and how to present myself.

Writer. Editor. Journalist. New Yorker. Aspiring bobsledder. Seattleite (in my heart at least). Standup paddleboarder. Doting auntie. Amateur therapist. Fitness enthusiast. Wannabe health nut.

You might also notice a shift in focus on this blog. The healing myself, finding myself, what I’m doing in New York approach isn’t really working for me anymore. But I like the theme of presenting myself.

I’m a journalist, nutritionist, doting auntie, one-time bobsledder, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
