In 2012, David started as a CNA in long-term care and eventually presented with the opportunity to train to become an Administrator. He now has ten years of healthcare experience across three different states. By starting as a frontline staff member and working his way up, he has firsthand experience on the duties and challenges across all departments, so he sets realistic expectations to set his team up for success.
