“I have worked at Alternatives for 3 years. I started here as an LSI when I was a sophomore in college thinking it would just be my summer job. As months and semesters went on, I got more involved with APA and became a program Liaison during that time. APA has given me professional and direct care experience, a flexible schedule that allows me to work no matter how busy my life gets…and a chance to work with an incredibly unique and rewarding population…My coworkers and supervisors have become my very best friends and APA has changed my life in more ways than one.” -Bridget Nelson
