Areas of Expertise:
  • Pediatric Occupational Therapy
  • Motor learning and skill acquisition
  • Attention, disease severity and activities of daily living in Alzheimer disease
Prior to my faculty appointment, I was director of OT services at Lamm Institute for Child Neurology treating neurologically impaired children as an occupational therapist (OT). OT treatment emphasizes learning skills that are impacted by developmental and neurological disorders to enable improved participation in home, school, and social environments. My research investigates differences in learning complex motor skills through the life span in typical and disordered populations. I explore attention as it affects complex task performance from both a developmental and neuropsychological perspective. I teach courses in neuroanatomy, cognitive neuroscience, activity analysis / motor learning , pediatric treatment, and advise research projects. I hold a recently completed PhD in neuropsychology. My dissertation examined attention processes that decline in patients with Alzheimer disease and how these declines effect every day function.
