Alzheimer’s Community Care has named Malaika C. Barlow as its new Vice President of Human Resources. Barlow brings more than 10 years of Human Resources experience to her role in providing strategic vision and leadership of quality and innovative consumer-driven human resources services and programs to support organizational goals, including a healthy and positive work environment for all Alzheimer’s Community Care employees and volunteers.
Prior to joining Alzheimer’s Community Care, Barlow worked as the Director of Human Resources for two home health agencies and served as Vice President of Human Resources at a local nonprofit.
Barlow began her career as an attorney in Washington, D.C., working at two law firms — McKenna & Cuneo LLP and Seyfarth, Shaw LLP. At both firms, she practiced employment law. In May of 2000, Malaika moved to South Florida to accept a position within the law department of Ocwen Federal Bank in West Palm Beach. When she found her interests aligned more with assisting employers in maximizing their most valuable asset – their employees – Malaika retired from the practice of law.
Originally from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Barlow remains a member of the Virginia Bar. She graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Arts, obtained a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Law School at the College of William & Mary, and completed Villanova University’s Masters Certificate program in Human Resource Management.
