Personal Statement

Every aspect of my career enriched my understanding of the professional case manager’s important role as a member of the healthcare team. I dedicated myself to develop case manager expertise through a commitment to the Commission’s essential mission and vision of case management excellence through certification and continual practice development. The work of the Commission grows more critical in the face of the continuing evolution of health care. The support of case managers to achieve and maintain board certification is essential to the long-term sustainability of consistent, professional, client-centric case management.
