The newest Matchmaker on Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker is a graduate of Northwestern University School of Law. Candace Smith has been an attorney and a “connector” in business and love for over a decade. While practicing full time as an attorney Candace won the prestigious title of Miss Ohio USA in 2003. Upon completion of her duties as Miss Ohio USA 2003, she accepted the position of project manager for the W.I.N. Project, an events, marketing and consulting company. As project manager Candace had the opportunity to manage several global ventures, including the Turks and Caicos International Film Festival. While in this position, she established herself as a no-nonsense “connector” for impressive clientele worldwide seeking both professional and personal guidance.

Candace began consulting for clients in the areas of business and lifestyle but naturally her single clients began turning to her for direction with their love lives. Matchmaking, relationship counseling and coaching came easily to Candace as a result of her Psychology degree, acute intuition, candor, extensive networks, and varied life experience. She has found the matchmaking vocation to be beyond rewarding; her first successful love connection recently celebrated a 10 year anniversary and two children. Since then, Candace has connected singles from all over the world and helped them find their perfect partner in both the boardroom and the bedroom.
