This week, Alzheimer’s Association, Orange County (AAOC) welcomes five-year Alzheimer’s advocate Jody Hudson, CTFA to its distinguished board of directors. One of Southern California’s premier nonprofit organizations for Alzheimer’s research and education, AAOC provides no-cost programs and services for families and caregivers, while raising critical funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
Hudson, a Tustin resident, joins the nonprofit’s existing team of esteemed individuals in guiding the organization’s local resources and initiatives.
Hudson is vice president and relationship manager at First American Trust in Santa Ana where she is responsible for the administration of trust and investment management accounts for high net worth clients. Hudson has been exposed to the reality of Alzheimer’s both personally and professionally. Many of Hudson’s clients have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and her father has been exhibiting symptoms of dementia for nearly 10 years. Hudson explained that the disease became apparent when everyday tasks such as driving and cooking became difficult for him.
In addition to her recent board member induction, Hudson was a recipient of the 2014 Alzheimer’s Volunteer Partner of the Year award and is a founding member of AAOC’s Visionary Women 1000 group.
