Candi joined the WER Architects/Planners Northwest Arkansas office in the fall of 2018. She has over 12 years of experience in design and construction administration, having worked both independently as an Architect in south Arkansas, and contracting with various firms throughout the state. Over the last few years, Candi has become increasingly involved in community projects that range from the construction of a rail trail to an outdoor classroom at the local elementary school. These have contributed to Candi’s passion in community and economic development, and led her to pursue a Masters in Community Development from Kansas State University. Upon graduation, Candi plans to pursue a career in master planning, with an emphasis on public education and sustainable economic development strategies that enhance a community’s quality of life.
