I am a licensed psychologist and board-certified clinical neuropsychologist who practices in Flagstaff Arizona. My training began in Wisconsin where I earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Marquette University. I earned my doctoral degree at Northern Arizona University with a specialization in school psychology and subsequently completed a predoctoral internship in pediatric psychology with the Northern Arizona Child Evaluation Program, a multi-disciplinary medical clinic serving infants and preschool age children with congenital and acquired CNS conditions. My postdoctoral internship with the Northern Arizona University, Institute for Human Development focused on the psychological and neuropsychological evaluation of adult patients with neurological and psychiatric conditions in a vocational rehabilitation setting. For most of my career, I have maintained an independent practice in general clinical neuropsychology. Most recently, I have served as a clinical neuropsychologist with the Northern Arizona Healthcare Medical Group, Departments of Primary Care and Neurology, in affiliation with the Flagstaff Medical Center.
My teaching experience includes serving as an adjunct assistant professor with the University of British Columbia where I supervised doctoral students in their intellectual assessment practicum and at Northern Arizona University where I taught courses in child development. I am a past president of the Arizona Psychological Association, Life Status Member of the American Psychological Association and a Fellow with the College of the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology.
