Hello Coos County, it is an honor for me to introduce myself, Candace Wallis, as the newest counselor at Coastal Center. With my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of South Florida, my knowledge and energy will benefit Coastal Center in many ways. Tired of the Florida heat, my husband Michael and I finally decided to trek across the country to the beautiful Oregon coast. We decided to nest out west in search of the great outdoors, the majestic explorations, and escaping the humidity. Our hobbies include hiking, cooking, loving our two well-behaved dogs, and shopping with Michael’s credit cards. We could not be more excited for this next chapter of our lives and we hope to see you out in the community.
