Candi Pearson grew up in Lawrenceville, VA and graduated from Brunswick High School. She attended Southside Virginia Community College's Practical Nursing program at the Estes Community Center in Chase City and was on the President's List.
After earning her certificate from SVCC and becoming an LPN, Candi worked in long term care, assisted living, and corrections.
Currently employed at SVCC as a Business Office Specialist and Payroll Technician, she plans to return to classes to earn her Associates degree. She says, "It's never too early or too late to start taking classes toward a career. I had an awesome college experience. My instructors really prepared me to think and problem solve for real life situations."
Candi lives in Lawrenceville with her three children. In her spare time, she volunteers at an assisted living facility and is writing her own music for a future R&B CD.
