Candice Nance

Degrees: MBA, International Business, American International College; BS, Marketing with Honors, San Jose State University; AA, Business with High Honors, Ohlone Community College Teaching Experience: Ohlone College, Fremont, CA; Cañada College, Redwood City, CA (2013 - Present) Career Highlights: My love for community college began back when I was a community college student myself at Ohlone College in Fremont, California. My passion for traveling and study abroad stemmed from an opportunity through Ohlone College to study abroad at Cambridge University in Cambridge, England. I transferred to San Jose State University to earn my degree in marketing and then became a Marketing Communications Coordinator for NASA’s Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) program at the NASA Ames Research Center. From there I moved to London, England to work in marketing and sales at IPC Systems, Inc. creating specialized communications solutions for the financial trading industry. I completed my MBA in International Business on nights and weekends while living in London and then transitioned to wrap up my studies in Bangkok, Thailand. When I returned to the States, I worked at Stanford University’s Overseas Resource Center assisting students pursuing scholarships for study and research abroad. Passions: When I’m not teaching, I’m usually traveling the world one country at a time or buzzing around the Bay Area in a small plane or tinkering with technology. All with my family and friends in tow. Favorite Quote: “The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.” - B.B.
