Caitlin's role as an Operations Manager for Cogniciti is two-fold: she manages the day-to-day business operations and continues to develop international partnerships and strategies to grow Cogniciti's trial-ready Research Registry.
Prior to joining Cogniciti, Caitlin worked in program management and business administration within the Canadian long-term care sector for over four years. She then went on and founded Memory Mats, an innovative approach to memory recollection tools. Caitlin is also the founder of Purple Elephant, a non-profit organization whose mission includes changing the way young people think about Alzheimer's disease on a global scale and developing an innovative approach for the delivery of in-home caregiving relief for young people whose lives have been impacted while caring for their loved one with Alzheimer's disease.
As Community Engagement Specialist, Justine is dedicated to growing Cogniciti's next generation of Community Engagement Officers, who in turn connect with communities and build relationships to deliver Cogniciti's Brain Health Workshop across North America and the United Kingdom. As the first point of contact for many workshop participants, Community Engagement Officers focus on providing a unique memory-screening experience to older adults. They help answer the question “Is my memory normal or should I see my doctor?” and provide older adults with the best brain health tips in science today.
Justine began her work with Alzheimer's within long-term care. She has over four years of experience working with older adults facing Alzheimer's and other dementias. While she loved her work in long-term care, she was determined to change the future of Alzheimer's. She is hopeful that Cogniciti's recruitment solution will push clinical development forward to find a solution this epidemic needs.
