Kandis Weiler, Founder, President & CEO of User Telecommunications & Technologies, Inc. (UT&T), an 8(a)/SDB woman-owned business. UT&T specialized in voice & data services for the Federal Government, Military and Private Sector. Kandis also attended the Executive Leadership Program at the University of Texas, El Paso and was ranked #165 on the Inc. 500 list for the fastest growing company. After 12 years of running the company, she decided to turn her focus to her family and stay at home with her three kids. In 2012, Kandis returned to government contracting part-time to work for a small woman-owned business where she wears multiple hats and is the resident Facility Security Officer, Quality Manager, and Program Manager for the Navy's Sea Services Security Assistance Council (SSSAC) contract. 

Kandis has always had a passion for volunteering and giving back to her community. In 2015, Kandis joined Cyberjutsu Girls Academy (CGA), an extension of Women's Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) as a volunteer when her daughter participated in the STEM Workshops and CyberPatriot program. The program's mission had such a positive impact on Kandis and inspired her to dedicate more time and effort into expanding the program and seeing more young ladies and women grow in the field of technology. Kandis is also a Strategic Advisor for Defender Academy, a woman-owned company whose mission is to also educate middle and high school students in the field of cyber security.
