Originally from Tennessee, Candice studied at the University of Tennessee with an initial interest in chemistry. As a resident assistant, she started a community garden and saw firsthand the challenges of waste on the environment. She changed her major to sustainability and started plugging into like-minded networks—which eventually led to TerraCycle, where she’s been happy ever since.
When a company doesn't have a way to recycle their waste, Candice jumps in to create it. She works with brands to help them invest in a post-consumer send-back program so that consumers across the country can send back their waste—for free. Candice helps facilitate partnerships that benefit consumers and companies.
