Contact Candis

Born in Philadelphia yet raised across the bridge, Candis is a Jersey girl with “wooder ice” roots. After moving back to the city in 2016, her reintroduction to Philly has taken her everywhere from beer gardens to booing on the Wells Fargo Center floor. After covering Philly social events, restaurants, and sports for years, she thought it was time to put her food training to good use and join The Infatuation. And by food training, she means playing Gordon Ramsay YouTube clips in the background while making pasta in her apartment.
