Candace is dedicated to her colleagues, community and members, connecting them with vital resources to be healthy. Her role as Prevention and Wellness Coordinator was new when she began but that didn’t stop her from establishing herself as a leader, guiding the team on a path to better health through leading virtual walks, wellness challenges and webinars. With her guidance, Aetna Better Health of Kentucky was awarded Silver Wellness status by the Aetna Enterprise, honoring the staff for its participation and accomplishments in the area of wellness. During COVID-19, she engaged with the team through creative and forward-thinking efforts to inspire her colleagues and her managers alike. She takes her job very seriously, but she’s never too serious. It’s rare to be in a meeting with Candace where there isn’t laughter.
