As part of her job, she wrote up care plans and visited clients before beginning work as an independent care manager.
Her employer became suspicious in June 2016 when the company was unable to verify that her credentials were up-to-date. She quit her job as authorities started to dig into her background.
Authorities determined that Polhman lied about her credentials. Deputies said she had no doctoral degree, no nursing degree and no nursing license. She had created a fake license and further bolstered her story with a fictitious award from the Mayo Clinic, which she displayed in her office. The award was bought from a Jacksonville trophy shop, according to authorities.
Pohlman is being held in St. Johns County Jail on $50,000 bail.
