Personal Statement

I had the pleasure of graduating from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and am now providing neuropsychological services at Weill Cornell Medicine. As a neuropsychologist, I enjoy being able to see the patient in a holistic fashion, incorporating life circumstances, family setting, and personality in addition to their neurological functioning. For me, understanding the brain and its two-way interaction with behavior is a fascinating scientific undertaking that is enhanced by the interpersonal relationship with the patient. My goal is to undertand the person as a whole, and help integrate their neurological functioning with the rest of their activities to achieve the best possible quality of life.
