Community Outreach Coordinator Intern (Former Employee) – Cedar Falls, IA – June 25, 2018
Being an intern here was incredible. Working in a small office with three other people was amazing, we were able to work quickly and get things done. A quick day in the office looked like: Going around to different health centers in the CV area in the morning to pass out brochures and flyers about the event, Calling people to recruit volunteers and fundraising for the event, and lastly working on the event that was being held at the end of September.

Family Case Consultant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 17, 2018
The salary does not match the cost of living. Of course this is not a job that you expect to be paid a six figure income, however, one should not be having issues making ends meet as well when you are being asked to work extended hours, travel in your personal vehicle and not really being compensated for it. Also lack of room for advancement along with being expected to be familiarize with all facets of the disease with poor education training does not help.
Excellent people to work with and great leadership

My time at the Alzheimer's Association ignited a fire in me to never give up on the fight to end Alzheimer's Disease and related dementia. I was completely unaware of just how big of an issue this was and how I could be a part of the fight. I improved my public speaking and interpersonal skills way more than I expected to. The entire organization felt invested in making the most of my experience with them.
