About Me

As a psychologist, I specialize in stroke motor intervention, behavioral change and comprehensive behavioral intervention for tics. I work with many adult stroke survivors to aid them in overcoming the emotional and physical challenges that can accompany stroke recovery. In addition to my work in neurorehabilitation, I have also authored several original papers, abstracts, book chapters and review articles.

I believe it is importance to provide treatments that are shown to be the most effective in well-designed research studies. I feel that healthcare is a service, and therefore it is important to listen to each patient and work with him or her to form an individual treatment plan.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because of the opportunities to grow through working with others with different expertise. I also value being able to conduct my work on a multidisciplinary care team.

In my free time I enjoy dancing, relaxing with my family and enjoying the outdoors.
