She realized that helping foreigners acclimate and problem-solve was both a calling and a career.
Candida studied culture at Montclair State University, and received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Latin American Studies, with a Minor in Translation and Interpretation.
In 1996, she launched Global Arrival. At first, her firm specialized in corporate relocation and in fact never had a relocation fail.
She later transitioned into working exclusively with senior leaders on how to thrive in foreign cultures. Candida worked with hundreds of executives, all of whom successfully completed their international projects.
As part of her training, she attended Fairleigh Dickinson University and earned a Masters in Organizational Behavior and Leadership Studies.
She also received a Step I & Step II Myers Brigg Type Indicator certificate with a Specialty in Leadership and Culture, and is certified through the American Management Association in Communication, HR Relations, and Project Management.
Since beginning her company, Candida has consulted with hundreds of executives and their family members from 39 countries.
She and her husband Bob, a psychotherapist, live just outside of Princeton, New Jersey.
