"The board will continue to support CARF's expansion of accreditation services globally to ensure that persons around the world have access to quality health and human services," Johnson pledged.

Johnson served on the faculty of the University of Redlands for twenty years. She holds M.B.A. and B.S. degrees and RN/AAS designation, and she is a licensed nursing home administrator and certified residential care administrator.

Before her present position overseeing operations for Senior Resource Group, Johnson held chief operating officer positions in large retirement housing companies for ten years.

At the board's previous meeting in Tucson, Arizona, the directors reelected Kayda Johnson, Marvin Mashner, and Robert Short to serve three-year terms on the board beginning January 1, 2014.
