Meet Candice, Land Stewardship Director

Candice merges her love for the open spaces of southern Colorado with her professional experience as a legal editor in the position of Director of Land Stewardship. She grew up transient—New York City, Sumatra, California and Belgium—but fell in love with Colorado during an internship at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder.  She earned her JD at the University of California, in the bicycle-centric community of Davis, before moving to Colorado Springs. A community volunteer with a camera, a legal license, and dirt under her fingernails, Candice advocated for open space preservation, served on the original Hillside Ordinance Advisory Committee, and volunteers with the Pikes Peak Marathon, fire mitigation projects, and creek side cleanup efforts. She and her husband, a runner, raised their children in Colorado Springs, where music, theatre, and visual arts were richly complimented by farm to table initiatives, regional parks, abundant wildlife, skiing, rafting, fly fishing, back packing, and daily awe across the vistas of southern Colorado. Candice joins Palmer dedicated to preserving this land-centric identity and quality of life for future generations.
