January 2022
Candice Sinclair


Quest: Can you tell me something about yourself?

Candice: I grew up in a small village named Foremost most of my life and graduated high school in 2001. I have a Teaching Assistant certificate from Red Deer College and a Disability and Community Rehabilitation Diploma from Lethbridge College. I’ve been in the Human Service field since 2005. My family is my biggest supporters in my life as well as my boyfriend of 6 years. I have a 10 year old dog named Cooper who has been my partner in crime for 9 years. I knew what I wanted to do with my life while in high school and that was to help people overcome barriers just like I have.



Quest: What is one thing that people might not know about you?

Candice: I have a hard time trusting people at first and I have 6 tattoos. I at times struggle with anxiety and depression.



Quest: What are some hobbies that you like to do and/or a hobby you’d like to get into?

Candice: I have tons of projects going all the time, it’s ridiculous but I do enjoy reading (mostly paranormal romances). I’ve learned to crochet, cross stitch and just whatever I find enjoyable at the moment.



Quest: If you could snap your fingers and become an expert at something, what would it be?

Candice: Money management. I can balance other people's money, but not my own



Quest: How long have you worked at Quest and what program do you work at?

Candice: I’m proud to say I've been with Quest for four years, mainly in the living program.



Quest: What is your favourite thing about working at Quest?

Candice: Being a part of a great group of people, and the support that I have received from my supervisor, especially this year.



Quest: What is your favourite thing about the individuals you work with at Quest?

Candice: I have so many favourite things about the individuals I support but if I had to chose one thing it would have to be that no matter what is going on in someone’s life whether it’s another individual's or a staff member, everyone is there for each other.



Quest: What is one of your favourite memories from the past year?

Candice: With Covid being still among us, I would have to say going back to Impact and getting back into our routine.

Quest recognizes those employees who have achieved milestone anniversaries with the company. Employees who have reached their five, ten, twenty, twenty-five, and thirty-year milestones receive a special recognition and gift. In addition to the five-year gift, employees receive additional holiday and personal days per year, as well as an increase in vacation pay (See policy ER-11 for details). We appreciate all of the hard work our staff put in over the years and look forward to many more years to come! 

Employees will receive their first annual wage increase upon completion of their one-year file requirements.
