Biography

I am an occupational therapist with experience in neurological recovery. I am an experienced recruiter with involvement in clinical trials focused on pairing non-invasive brain stimulation techniques with therapeutic intervention. My research interest is to determine the optimal pairing and execution of cutting-edge technologies to facilitate and enhance outcomes in individuals with neurological illness. I have practiced occupational therapy abroad and am passionate about bringing cutting-edge technologies to assist individuals in need from all walks of life.

I am well-versed and certified in neurological evaluations, including but not limited to the Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity Assessment, Wolf Motor Function Test, Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment, Modified Ashworth Scale, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, and the Action Reach Arm Test. Additionally, I have assisted  with the Intensive Course in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA.
