Do what makes you happy. It’s okay to take chances. Life’s too short. A wise man once told me, “Sometimes you have to take a step back to take two steps forward.”

Describe the work you do at the Credit Union.

My job is to look over all consumer loans before funding. I make sure they’re perfect and not missing any information or documents. I also help other departments with consumer loan questions. I’m everyone’s go-to person… just ask anyone. 😊

What was your first job?

My first job was scooping ice cream at Baskin Robins. I was pregnant at the time, so it was tough because half my paycheck went to the ice cream and shakes I ate while I was there. After having my son, I left Baskin Robins and went back to school.

How did you come to be an SCE FCU team member?

I worked at Longo Toyota for 12 years, were I started as a receptionist, moving to the Service Department and ultimately landing in the Service & Collision department. It was a great experience and taught me so much about sales and service. A coworker who became an amazing friend, started working at the Credit Union. She told me to apply for a Member Care Center position and she knew I would be a great fit. I immediately applied and was so nervous during my interview, but it went great! I was hired a week later. I knew I would work my way up in no time. After one year in the MCC, I moved to Loan Services. I’ve now been here three wonderful years (going on four) and I’m VERY happy! I’m looking forward to many more years!

How do you spend your free time?

I spend a lot of time with family. I’m not married, but I have two handsome sons – ages 20 and 14. They love the outdoors and keep me busy. We go on camping trips with big groups of family and friends and just started hiking. I love traveling… it’s my favorite. I recently went to Ireland and San Francisco. I’m planning a trip to Hawaii this year. I’ve never been and I’m so excited! 😊

In April, Candice was named Team Member of the Month for her excellent support to our team. She shares her knowledge to ensure our team provides the best service to our members. She’s even stayed late on a Saturday to help fund a last minute loan for a member who was very appreciative. Candice is always enthusiastic and ready to help… our members and our team!
