Candace Windisch, Community Programs Manager

I’ve been with Enviros for over 15 years and currently act as Manager of Community Services.

My background is in Criminology and I have found my passion exploring what can happen when people come together, help each other learn, connect and grow and create opportunities for change. I spent the early part of my career working with young people struggling with trauma and people involved in the justice system. I have spent 15 years working with and supporting people living with FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder). I’m an avid reader, love to travel and be in the outdoors, and spend time with family and friends.

I believe that when we support each other to understand the needs of our communities, and use that knowledge to create change- we can achieve anything.

I’m privileged to be able to work with people who support environments where growth can happen and a sense of connection and belonging exist. I am passionate about working where innovation is paired with curiosity, empowerment and persistence; where intentional, informed, and strengths based practice encourages resilience, and self-efficacy- all reflected in our achievements. We can have a more accepting, inclusive environment that encourages people to move toward their vision for themselves and their families, ultimately creating a healthy environment for all.
