My Passion for Healthcare

I like children and was fascinated by the brain in school, which naturally led me to pursue a career in neuropsychology where I could try to develop a better understanding of the influence of the brain on children’s development and functioning. Fortunately, I crossed paths with exceptional mentors who helped guide me in my pursuits. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to apply my knowledge and training in my work with children and families.

Services I Provide

  1. Neuropsychological Evaluation
  2. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  3. Epilepsy Evaluation

My Clinical Focus

I enjoy working with children and families to develop an understanding of strengths and challenges through neuropsychological assessment. Also, when I work with children who have epilepsy, it is very rewarding to work with a multidisciplinary team to develop a comprehensive treatment plan to best meet each child’s needs. I am very active in research, publishing and graduate training through the University of Texas. My current research interests include the application of functional imaging in pre-surgical decision making and the modeling of neuropsychological data in epilepsy subtypes.
