“I highly recommend Cathy Cress. Cathy has served as a business consultant to Fedelta Care Solutions for the past two years in the capacity of consultant, trainer and presenter. As a result of Cathy's services, my organization has established a successful geriatric care management practice and developed strong management practices, which lead the industry. Additionally, Cathy has partnered with my company to speak on various geriatric topics presented to the professional and clinical audiences which have resulted in an open invitation for return visits to the Seattle area. Cathy is a consummate professional who is truly a pioneer in our industry.”

“As the President of the Board for the Health Projects Center in Santa Cruz, California, I requested that we invite Cathy to consult in the development of a for profit senior care business line that HPC was considering. Her expertise was invaluable and helped HPC develop a comprehensive strategy to enter the senior care management market. She brought significant levels of experience and insight to the conversation. Her ability to communicate with the Board was critical to board decision making.”
