Professional Statement

I am a board certified neuropsychologist through the American Board of Professional Psychology and a member of the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. I have 25+ years experience as a neuropsychologist working in clinical and academic settings. I am currently in private practice consulting at Swedish Neurosciences Institute and Northwest Hospital/UW. I focus on adults with neurological issues including CNS and Non-CNS cancer, cerebrovascular, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, dementia, movement disorders and others. I am on medical staff at Swedish and UW/Northwest Hospital. I am a clinical assistant professor at UW School of Medicine/Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. I obtained my doctorate from Brigham Young University. My pre-doctoral training was at the University of Utah and I completed two post-doctoral years, one at the Philadelphia Geriatric Center and another year at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
