Internships have a bad rep. Interns are thought of as the coffee-getters, the paper-staplers, and the corporate slaves to their superior. As a college senior and young professional, I was intimidated by these labels simply because I wanted to have a purpose wherever I decided to work.
From February 20th through 22nd, 2019, our President, Chris, represented Markentum at NIC Spring 2019 in San Diego, California.

In attendance were a variety of people all engaging on different levels to further the conversation and momentum of what is happening in senior living and housing today.

LeadingAge is a national organization, with state chapters, whose mission is to serve, inspire and advocate for seniors. This year,LeadingAge Tennessee’s Annual Conference & Vendor Showcase focused on what it means to live a life with intention - Life on Purpose.

My very first day as an intern at Markentum is a day I will never forget. As a recent high-school graduate, about to start my first year in college, I was anxious about what was to come as I embarked on this new endeavor. What I didn’t know was how much I was going to learn and grow as a young adult.
At national conferences, we all have different goals and takeaways, but one thing we all have in common in the senior living industry is the love we have for the people we care for and work with. Markentum values growing relationships and engaging in the industry we love - senior living.
