From the Doctor

As a Florida native, I try to take advantage of the mild climate and plentiful activities here. I especially enjoy going to the beach, bike riding, film festivals, and going to various outdoor markets.

My background as a social worker influences my practice of clinical neuropsychology. I have a goal-oriented and empathic approach to patient care that is focused on social justice on behalf of my patients and the systemic issues that contribute to healthcare disparities in disadvantaged individuals. My primary interests include the development of neuropsychological tests for bilingual and non-English speaking individuals, and the effects of culture, language, and education level on cognitive test results.
