In this installment of Meet the Kalalou Family, we’re thrilled to feature Candace Patrick. Candace has been with Kalalou for 3 1/2 years and has loved every second of it. As a customer support representative, Candace works directly with the customers that make the job so easy and delightful. She finds joy in problem-solving, alleviating issues, and making every customer pleased with their Kalalou experience. Candace enjoys binge-watching crime shows, spending time with her precious family, or planning the lives of her un-married co-workers.
Tell us about you and your role at Kalalou: Well you know my name Candace Patrick. I work in customer service because helping people is what I love doing most. I reside in Florence, MS with my husband of 12 years, Justin and our two daughters Jade 11 and Camryn 6. We love the summer months when we can either do yard work or spend time at the creek with my parents, winter months are mostly spent inside as none of us like the cold weather. I’ve been with Kalalou 3 1/2 years and as long as the doors are open I don’t plan on going anywhere.

Any office nicknames we should know about? Candyland or Cantdance – since they know I hate is when people spell my name incorrectly.
