Mrs. Candice Stokes

Hello Wildcats! 

I am excited to be a part of the WCMS family again this year. This is my second year as a school counselor. As a school counselor, I am committed to being an active listener, an advocate, and a collaborative team player in order to have students reach their fullest potential. I am married to a retired Marine, John, for almost 15 years now. We have 2 beautiful girls; Courtney is 12 and in the 7th grade and Katelyn is 8 and in 3rd grade. They take up most of my time by taking them to dance and gymnastics. I also have 2 dogs, a Chocolate Lab (General) and a Pit Bull (Bella). I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Ashford University in 2012. I recently completed my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Capella University in 2016. I am originally from Florida, however, we have been in New Bern since 2002.  My hobbies include camping, kayaking, hiking, and reading. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and to having a successful school year. ​
