Dr Candice Williams earns a salary of $70k at Boston Celtics. And unlike their head coach, she wouldn't want to lose her lucrative job. 

Dr Candice Williams, the director of mental health and wellness at the Boston Celtics, has now been dragged into a neverending mess.

Williams, appointed in August by the 17-time NBA Champion, has made many believe that she is the one arranging travel plans for the Celtic coach and his wife.

On September 24, when TMZ broke the news that the female staffer with whom Udako had an intimate relationship used to handle his travel arrangements, fingers were pointed at many.

And one of those names was of Dr Candice Willliams. Though TMZ has not stated who the staff member is, we certainly don't think it could be Dr Williams.

Another name that has come forward is that of the team service manager, Kathleen Nimmo Lynch. Lynch has since deleted her Linkedin Account and has gone private on TikTok.

Dr Candice Williams Salary - How Much Do The Celtics Pay Their Newly Recruited Doctor?

Dr Candice Williams earns a salary of $70,228, as per the website Salary. Dr Candice, the newly recruited staff member, has an experience of more than a decade in the field.

Boston Celtics players aren't the first athletes that Dr Williams has handled. The Sam Houston State University graduate had previously worked as an Athletic Counselor with The Ohio State University Department of Athletics for three years.

Even during her undergraduate program, Dr Candice was exposed to working in the field of sport as she was the Athletic Compliance Assistant at Sam Houston State University. 

Mental Health is a topic that has been discussed vastly in the NBA, and in 2018 the billion-dollar franchise launched a mental health and wellness program. The director of the program Keyon Dooling during its launch, talked about his personal experience of suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as he fell victim to abuse.

Is Candice Williams Celtics Travel Planner?

Candice Williams is certainly not the Boston Celtics travel planner. The director of Mind Health and Wellness certainly has other plans she needs to plan about other than looking out for travel arrangements.

According to the report published by TMZ on September 24, the person with whom Ime Udoka, the Boston Celtic coach, shared an intimate relationship, used to handle his travel arrangements.

And not only did this staff member used to handle Udoka'a travel plans, but she was also the one who helped arrange that of his wife Nia Long as well. No shame in the world.

TMZ has not revealed the name of the female staff member, but she reportedly helped Nia Long, wife of the Celtic coach, move permanently to Boston. 

Boston Celtics have since suspended their head coach and have appointed Joe Mazzulla, the interim manager in his place. 

Who Is Celtics Dr Candice Williams?

Dr Candice Williams is the director of mind, health, and wellness at the Boston Celtics. The NBA franchise appointed Ms Williams a little over two months ago, and now the lady sees herself in the middle of a scandal that has rocked many people's lives.

Dr Williams has not published any statements regarding this matter and has kept herself away from the media. Her LinkedIn account is still public for viewing, but her Instagram handle is private and is believed to have stayed that away.

When Shams Charania, on September 22, tweeted out that the Celtic coach has shared an intimate relationship with a female staff member of the Boston Celtics, many names were thrown out.

And after a few days, Dr Candice Williams was also one of the names linked to the Boston Celtics coach. But with her social media activity, it doesn't look like Ms. Williams has anything to do with the scandal.

Dr Candice Williams worked as a psychotherapist at Children Safe Harbor for two years. The organization located in Texas strives to end the abuse of children and help to least lessen the trauma.
