Sports Director - Candi Wills (She/Her/Hers)

Originally from Pittsburgh and former Pittsburgh Stonewaller, Candi has enjoyed the Boston scene since August 2017. She drove the 11 hours from the 'burgh to Beantown to start her journey on the road to her PhD. Currently, she is working on her dissertation at Northeastern University in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice while also marching in protests for social justice and police reform. When not blocking traffic and surviving her research, Candi can be found playing in women's flag football and queer-centered sports including kickball, dodgeball, the occasional softball, and snowboarding -- or dramatically falling with a board attached with her fellow lesbian-identifying friends. She may also be spotted carrying and being walked by her very mature 16 y/o Puggle named Puggles Leanne alongside her U-Haul partner, Jay. Candi is overly excited to serve the LGBTQ+ community through sports, outreach and volunteering with Stonewall and creating a welcoming, inclusive space for all LGBTQ+, queer-identifying and those of the ally persuasion to play recreational league sports!
