Candis Castorani knew exactly when she found her path in life. 

It was during a lecture in a college class called Introduction to Psychology. The professor was addressing questions she’d long wondered about the workings of the brain. For years she’d watched a relative grapple with anxiety. Why does this happen? And how can we make things better?

Castorani was a confident young woman, quiet, self-motivated and driven – a natural leader, the go-to person friends turned to in a jam.  

Psychology felt like a perfect fit with her goals – to help families, especially children in a school setting.
