Candace’s husband, Jeff Copher, was involved in a very serious accident in 2021 – struck while riding his bicycle – and he was life flighted to the hospital where he underwent emergent neurosurgery. He sustained a severe traumatic brain injury and doctors told her that the odds were very slim he would make a full recovery.

Holly has had a career in the medtech industry, supporting organizations and individuals as they grow. She finds it personally and professionally rewarding to influence the future of innovation, having personally been touched by medical innovations when her son was young and required three open heart surgeries. Today, he is alive and well because of the medical technology companies that she works to support.
Growing up, Cydney was exposed to engineering from her mom and orthopedic devices at a young age from her grandmother’s knee surgeries and her own foot pronation for which she received custom orthotics. She finds fulfillment in innovation, helping patients, and working with customers in an externally facing role.
