"To me, being a CDM, CFPP means that I make a difference in someone's life and making employees succeed. Being a CDM, CFPP means providing care, getting to know your residents, being creative, and providing excellent service. It has given me opportunities to grow into a position and help my staff reach the next level to further their career."
