Volunteer Program Coordinator
Kandis began her career at Lakeview Pantry in April 2015 and serves as the Pantry’s Volunteer Coordinator. Previously, she held positions at Chicago Cares, the Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Center, and the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Chicago.
Kandis earned her bachelor’s degree in English writing from DePauw University in 2011 and has pursued work in the nonprofit sector since 2012.
What she appreciates most about working at Lakeview Pantry is the close connections she gets to build with volunteers that go a long way in bringing support and dignity to Lakeview Pantry clients. In her spare time, Kandis enjoys eating pizza while watching reruns of Parks and Recreation (and unashamedly aspiring to be more like the show’s lead character Leslie Knope).
