Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of youth with chronic illness or injury affecting the central nervous system. I have a particular interest in neuropsychological sequelae in pediatric congenital heart disease.

Care Philosophy
I believe in meeting families where they are, and using my skill set as a pediatric neuropsychologist (an expert in brain-behavior relationships) to help them understand the child or young adult's unique sets of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. This understanding can help us to plan interventions and supports to optimize the child/young adult's developmental trajectory and help them to be as successful as possible.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy running, reading novels, hiking, and watching professional soccer.
