Professional Statement
MS and other neurological conditions come with many physical, cognitive and emotional challenges that can hurt a person’s satisfaction with life. As a clinical rehabilitation psychologist at the MS Center, I work to educate and equip patients and families to deal effectively with the demands of MS, and help them connect with others in a supportive community.

Personal Interests
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, biking, kayaking and skiing with my family. I like to spend quieter moments with a good book, a challenging puzzle and cooking.
