Candice Rogers, Director, Planning & Operations, Finance
What woman has positively impacted/inspired you in your career, and what’s one lesson she taught you?
I owe my career to my mom. She instilled confidence in me at a young age to be anything that I wanted to be. When she was young there weren’t many opportunities for women. She really pushed me to go to college & obtain a successful career.
As a woman in travel, how has RCI demonstrated inclusion?
Describe one or more characteristics about yourself that you believe led to your success.
I can be a bit of a workaholic at times. My non Finance friends don’t understand it, but I love to analyze numbers & work in Excel. I also really love to have fun but a good day of hard work gives me a ton of satisfaction.
What would you tell young women who are just starting to work? What would you like them to know?
What do you like to do outside of work?
Spend time with my friends & family. I really enjoy playing cards & board games with my family, especially during COVID! I can’t wait to see live music again & get together with friends. My boyfriend Chris & I enjoy walking our dog Peanut & riding our bikes. And of course I love to travel. My favorite vacation will always involve a beach but I also enjoy visiting new places & trying new things. I’m very blessed to have great family & friends, most of which I have met at RCI throughout my 23 years with the company
