Master’s Program for Women Leadership Coach
Candace Caley lives in Houston Texas with her husband of 34 years, John, and her Bichon Frise, Mitzi. She has one incredible, 28 year old son, Jeff, who is a banker and also lives in Houston. So far, no daughter-in-law or grandchildren, hence her preoccupation with Mitzi! Candace lost her mother to cancer as a young teenager and God blessed her by bringing her stepmother Dimple, into her life, who, after much persistence and prayer, brought Candace to Christ. Candace, a life-long learner, found Christ, along with her passion for studying and teaching in-depth Bible Study classes at her church.
Candace began her career at Arthur Andersen & Co. in Houston, Texas after graduating from the University of Tulsa with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. With over 25 years of professional services experience in financial and operational consulting for the financial services industry, her clients include large commercial and mortgage banks, the GSEs, large seller-servicers and the FDIC and the SBA. She oversees a team of delivery experts who serve large and medium-sized financial services clients across the nation. Candace also acts as a subject matter expert on BFS projects related to audit and compliance as well as to loss mitigation and other operational business process improvement projects for mortgage banks and servicers. Candace is a Partner with SolomonEdwardsGroup, LLC (SEG), as well as the founder and Managing Partner of the firm’s Banking & Financial Services Practice. Joining SEG in 2007, Candace also established and SEG’s Houston office.
By 2013, a career in a national consulting firm was becoming more and more consuming and Candace felt God’s strong call to “re-balance” her career and service to God and family. A long-standing consulting client suggested involvement with East West Ministries and cited his experience at The Master’s Program as a way to put the Kingdom first. An introduction to Beverly Pop of East West Ministries did the rest and God lead Candace to a new Master’s Program Class taught by Sandy Olsson. The Master’s Program for Women changed Candace’s life and has given her an opportunity to marry her passion for Christ with her passion for ministering to women in Houston’s business community. She is looking forward to starting her first Master’s Program for Women in Houston in the fall of 2016.
