Candace Boyd grew up in Livingston, AL. In 2016, she graduated magna cum laude from UA majoring in Operations Management and Supply Chain Management. She worked as a Data Analyst for 2 years and realized it was unfulfilling and not the correct path for her. After doing a lot of soul searching, Candace realized becoming a physician offers the challenges and fulfillment she’s seeking. After serving with Impact America, she plans to pursue medical school.
