She cofounded an improv company in the San Francisco area and has taught improv since 1995 to students of all ages. Her latest book to be released in 2018 is “Improv to Improve Healthcare: A System of Creative Problem Solving”.

Candy teaches the Clinical Nurse Leader Program, helping nurses to get out of the background and say, “Look if we’re not at the table, we’re going to be on the menu.”
She teaches her students how to think on their feet, to spontaneously adapt to untoward situations, to come up with solutions to emanate problems and to forecast in terms of change management with a future.
