Candy and her husband Tim have one son, Carson, and a dog named Rollie. Their lives currently revolve around their active 11-year-old and his many youth sports, including baseball, basketball, football, and downhill skiing. When they are not at baseball fields in the summer or at the ski hill for races most of the winter, they do enjoy skiing as an entire family, and going on family vacations and other adventures.
