The handbook gave me knowledge about the industry that is not easily come by when you’re new. I wanted to differentiate my knowledge base and my credibility in this amazing profession. I’m proud to be a CLFP. My official designation as CLFP will be granted to me when I reach my 3-year anniversary. Coming up soon!”
