He is a graduate from the University of Miami School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor and from the university’s School of Business Administration where he achieved a Master of Business Administration degree.

As home health agency administrator, Dodson is responsible for hiring, managing and performing service training and development of all agency personnel. Cypress Cove’s home health program provides assistance to requesting residents at any time – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The agency holds a Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP accreditation) and is supported through two certified caregiver groups – certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and certified home health aides (CHHAs).
The program provides a secure addition for Cypress Cove residents’ quality of life. “Our goal,” notes Executive Director Michele Wasserlauf, “is to keep our residents safe and comfortable. We are very pleased to have such a compassionate and caring administrator as Douglas leading our program.”
