Managing Partner


Candy started working in the health insurance industry in 1989 as a customer service representative for an insurance company. As her career progressed, she was hired by Gahlsdorf Insurance. This position gave her a passion for providing quality service early in her career. In 2016, Candy made the decision to purchase her long-time employer along with Heestand Company. Together with her business partner, Mary Caballero, she merged the companies to form Impact Benefits & Retirement.


Candy’s energy and positive outlook provide customers with the best experience when searching for knowledge, advocacy, and assistance. She believes the best way to maintain long term relationships is to provide honest, timely service to every customer.


Candy has served on the Agent Advisory Board for Kaiser Permanente Northwest and volunteered for Northwest Medical Teams, KLOVE radio station, YWCA Clark County Holiday Shop and 4-H. When she is not at work, her personal interests include spending time with her husband Brian and her daughters. She loves taking 40-mile bike rides, running with her dogs and spending an entire day in her craft studio.
