Patient Care Philosophy

The mission of the Memory and Brain Wellness Center is to help those living with memory loss to do so as fully and as well as possible. My personal approach to this involves forming strong partnerships to help people make behavioral changes and increase resilience. Coming from a rehabilitation perspective, I’m particularly excited about working together and developing tools to compensate for memory loss, increasing physical and social activities, and effectively managing stress.

Personal Interests

Rock climbing, music, travel, volunteering and community engagement, and especially time with family and friends.

Research Interests

Screening and early detection of cognitive impairment; non-medication interventions for memory loss; cross-cultural dementia care.
