Renee Porter, a 2021 McKnight’s Women of Distinction Rising Star honoree and the Dooley Center administrator, shares what it means to her to be a Woman of Distinction, the importance of mentors, how providers can increase diversity in long-term care, the best part of her day, her biggest accomplishment, when she knew eldercare was right for her, advice she would give someone thinking about entering the field, and where she thinks the industry is headed over the next decade.

The Diamond sponsor of the 2021 Women of Distinction program is PointClickCare.
