Candice at her desk at KDC 2015As 2015 came to a close, our agency had one of its first as a company.   We had our first employee, Candice LaSpina, our office manager, retire.

Candice spent twelve years at the agency.  She was so much more than our office manager.  She was our teacher, mentor, mom and guidance counselor.   She watched many of our staff grow up, get married and have babies during her time here.

Though Bill Doak said it best in his farewell email to the office on December 31, 2015:

Today is Candice’s last day and I’d like to take a moment to tell you how grateful Dave and I are for her nearly 12 years of service to Kirvin Doak.  With unrelenting devotion to the company, and absolute loyalty to the management and staff that have been a part of it, Candice has been there for us through good times and bad times.  If measures for good character are built on traits like honesty, integrity, work ethic and loyalty, then Candice leaves us as an All-Star in this regard, and a model for which we have to move forward.  Italy is a much improved country the day she lands in Rome.

 So, it is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye, thank you and Godspeed my friend.   

 Thank you Candice for your time at Kirvin Doak Communications – enjoy retirement!   Thank you!   #Ciao
