Meet Some of Our Star Volunteers

There is always more work to do than hands to do it. The staff at the Chapter simply couldn't do our jobs well without our volunteers. The people you'll meet on this page play critical roles in the success of our day-to-day office operations as well as in our Walk to End Alzheimer's.

Teresa Valko started helping the Chapter in December 2011. Everyone in her mother's side of the family has died from Alzheimer's disease, so she knows how critical this health care issue is. Teresa began participating in the Thousand Oaks Walk to End Alzheimer's in 2011 and has been involved ever since. Teresa now serves on the Alzheimer's Association California Central Chapter Board of Directors, and also works as an advocate on behalf of the Association. Teresa recently shared her story with StoryCorps, which was broadcast on NPR. To read more about Teresa's involvement as an advocate in the Ambassador Program, click here.
