“It was great to be able to sit with a group of women who are experiencing the same issues as I am as a working woman/mother. Esther was a very enjoyable teacher. She was honest and to the point. I really love learning and I have thoroughly enjoyed every class that I have taken through CMD. I am hoping to add enough classes to my Supervisor Certificate to receive the Management Certificate”
