She received her PhD in 2018 from Georgia State University as part of the dual degree program in Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, and Behavioral Neuroscience. Her master’s and dissertation work focused on brain-behavior relationships and neuroplasticity using structural neuroimaging. She then completed an APA-approved internship in pediatric neuropsychology at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Next, she completed a 2-year fellowship at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC focused on pediatric neuropsychology and functional neuroimaging.
