Neuropsychologist

Bloomington

I believe strongly in the importance of holistic, patient-centered care. I have experience working with athletes across all sports, including youth, high school, collegiate, professional, and Olympic populations. I received specialized training in management of sports related concussion at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and had the privilege of working with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Penguins. I value the importance of utilizing an active, individualized treatment approach for the management of concussion, including collaboration with an interdisciplinary team. In addition to the management of traumatic brain injury, I have also trained in the areas of general neuropsychology, polytrauma, spinal cord injury, chronic illness and pain management.

  • I have had a longstanding passion for sports and athletics. I was a three sport athlete growing up and began participating in triathlons during college.
