Kandy was born in Alaska, schooled in Michigan, and has lived in or traveled to a multitude of cities and towns all over the United States, thanks in part to four cross-country road trips over the past 15 years. She's finally settled in upstate New York, but the travel bug continuously bites, compelling her to use any and all free time driving around, looking for new and interesting places in which to get lost.
Kandy's parlayed her love of exploring upstate New York's stunning natural beauty with her passion for drooling over outstanding homes and properties into blogging. Currently, she's a daily contributor to an upstate New York real estate website that also focuses on arts, lifestyle, and culture. Further, she is the upstate New York columnist for a popular Brooklyn-based real estate blog. Her Friday column combines unique properties with local events, culture, and flavor, thereby making Kandy the de facto tour guide for city-dwellers seeking a weekend in the country.
On WriterAccess, Kandy has written many travel-related assignments, including a guide to her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska, as well as small towns, resort destinations, study-abroad programs, and much more.
