I am interested in how acquired brain injuries and disorders impact cognitive, behavioral, personality, and functional changes and problems. In addition, I strive to collaborate with, educate, and advise individuals with a brain injury on what they might do to compensate for cognitive, behavioral, and/or functional changes, as well as make referrals or provide counseling.
I enjoy exercising, biking, playing lacrosse and tennis, reading, and doing sudoku and crossword puzzles.
