Kandice Jacobs-Armstrong has garnered a stellar reputation as an inspiring & thought-provoking speaker, as well as an unmistakably insightful poet -- earning her an endorsement from famed poet and (then) Distinguished Professor of English at Virginia Tech, Nikki Giovanni. The southern roots, often referenced in her work, are a direct result of her upbringing in her native Jacksonville, Florida as well as the time she spent residing in the great state of Texas.
Beginning in 1999, she performed regularly in her hometown – first as a vocalist, at events hosted by the then Positive Third Productions, and later as a featured poet for the monthly Nokturnal Escape Entertainment's: Poetry As A Second Language spoken word events. From 2001 – 2005, she co-founded and managed a Florida corporation, Genius Minds, Inc., an arts administration business.
A true Renaissance woman, Kandice is a lover of learning. Thus, she is a proud graduate of Texas Woman's University, where she earned a Bachelor of General Studies (concentrating in English, Business & Sociology and graduating magna cum laude), and of Florida State College at Jacksonville where she earned an Associate of Science in Funeral Services. However, despite any academic or professional accolades, Kandice firmly defines herself as a committed follower of Christ. Having recently celebrated this publication's tenth year in circulation, Kandice remains all the more committed to passionate pursuit of purpose and fulfillment of her calling to "equip [her readers] to live life abundantly and leave a lasting legacy!"
