Candie’s bright smile lights up the room and her bright mind lights up her campaigns with digital smarts, media savvy, market-relevant strategies and client-happy results. She brings warmth, depth and years of experience in local, national and international markets to her work. Her skills in research, contract negotiation and spend analysis make her a valuable asset when tackling the ins and outs of media planning. Her extensive background in print, digital, broadcast and outdoor advertising gives Monarch clients an edge in reaching the device-hopping, media-hungry consumers of today.
Outside work, Candie’s loving heart and willing hands endeavor to make all our lives better. Whether she’s advocating for social justice, serving as a volunteer and leader for the Western Oklahoma Girl Scouts or undertaking projects that help the homeless, Candie is a worthy example of servitude, gratitude and rectitude for us all.
At home, (or, really anywhere she goes) Candie is mother to two busy teenagers and wife to an awesome cyber security expert. When she has a spare moment, which isn’t often, she heads to Galveston with her family to swim, fish and sea turtle watch.
Candie is a walking, talking example of a woman striving to have it all and give it her all. So far, she’s leading the way. Here at Monarch, we’re mighty proud she’s on our team.
