Candice Roy Brings Home the Silver

Candice Roy, Travisso’s lifestyle director, was recently presented with a Silver Award for Best Lifestyle Director in the nation. The winning announcement came during the 2018 National Association of Home Builder’s Sales and Marketing Awards last month in Orlando. The annual awards celebration is the association’s most prestigious event and honors the best of the best in the building industry nationwide. And, at Travisso we couldn’t be more proud of Candice and the lifestyle program she creates for our residents.

Events, childrens’ activities, clubs, OH MY!

The Travisso lifestyle director position falls under the helm of Travisso’s Homeowners Association located in The Palazzo. In her role, Candice is instrumental in ensuring Travisso’s lifestyle program is top-notch and meets the needs of its residents. As she continues to build the community’s program, her top priority is to provide a foundation on which to grow. “There’s a huge difference between planning the communications and marketing events for a couple hundred homes versus a couple thousand,” says Candice. “You have to have an understanding of what’s to come so you can prepare. Anyone can throw a party but it takes an understanding of the industry to grow a community. You need to be able to know where you are and where you want to go.”

Candice has laid the groundwork and is moving fast forward with fun, unique, and active programs tailor-made for the community. Since starting her position last June, events, fitness classes, and clubs meetings have increased significantly. Every month residents can choose from 10-12 events, 22 fitness classes, and 12 club meetings. Field trips are also on the rise. Starting this year there are plans to have one trip per quarter. From Palazzo Poker to Bunco, to Ladies Coffee, to Yoga and Tai-Chi there’s something for everyone. Whether you want to join a book club, take a walk with friends, or meet someone new there’s always something to do.

The Travisso lifestyle—creating experiences, connecting people

Though there are many facets of her position, what she loves the most is to create experiences that connect people and for families to enjoy them together. “Events are never a one-size-fits-all, you have to continually provide unique opportunities to bring people together.” For example, her favorite event was when the community came together to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights. “It was an event that took on a life of its own,” she says. “The atmosphere was so loving and joyous which is something you can’t force.”

However, the key to her success is her ability to look beyond event planning. “In the industry you’ll see that the majority of lifestyle directors focus on events for their neighborhood,” she says. “I like to look at how I can help the residents and offer a value-added service to the Travisso lifestyle.” But, the best part of being Travisso’s lifestyle director, says Candice, “is having a front row seat to watch the families in the community blossom.”
