Candace Mackey joined Benton SWCD as Operations Coordinator in November 2022.  Candace administrates the District’s day to day business. Her job is to provide operational and administrative support to Board and staff and ensure the smooth functioning and safe operation of the District.  Candace has over 10 years of experience in non-profit administration, with an academic background in Business Administration and Music Education. She began her career as a middle school choir and band teacher, moved on to marketing in tech, then as a steward for the environment with the SCA, working in fire prevention education with the Shoshone & Paiute Tribes of Duck Valley, the Idaho RC&D, and National Park Service. This experience led to a deep appreciation for environmental education and those bringing conservation resources to communities. Since that experience, she worked for non-profit arts organizations, completing a grass-roots effort to raise a center for the arts in a rural area outside of Santa Rosa, CA and presenting world class chamber music to its residents.  Having just moved to the Willamette valley in summer of 2022, she is enjoying learning from her colleagues about all the gorgeous and valuable natural areas so close to her new home. She and her husband and 7-year old son enjoy hiking, fishing and working on their new property with the assistance of two delightful doggie companions.
