Candice Hilse founded Yoj in 2008 after serving as a human resources and event planning leader at one of the largest retail companies in the U.S. Charged with planning store openings nationwide, she refined her corporate event planning abilities and mastered the art of infusing every event with its own character.
Candice eventually discovered that event planning and production was her passion—not sitting behind a desk—and decided to focus on it full-time through Yoj. Candice most enjoys, well, everything about her job. But if she has to get specific, it's drawing inspiration and a fresh perspective from each client and challenging her team to create entirely original events. Spending time with each client and designing events around their personality and style are what make her work at Yoj so rewarding and fun.
