What CDM Means To Me


Josh Eggeman, CDM, CFPP

Waupaca, WI

"To me, being a CDM means contributing to your organization at the highest level possible. Dining plays a huge role in senior living communities and I want it to be the very best it can."


Mary Lou Gansberg, CDM, CFPP

Elgin, IL

"It changed my life. I became a CDM at 42, working with seniors and changing the dietary department to be more hands-on with the members. The gratification I get by making my members happy with new dishes and desserts makes it all worth it. Also, teaching my staff and mentoring them."
