overview Training and Experience: Following completion of a PhD in clinical psychology (clinical neuropsychology specialization) at the University of Victoria, including a one-year clinical internship at the London Health Sciences Centre, I pursued post-doctoral training in clinical neuropsychology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. I was then employed as a staff neuropsychologist in the Epilepsy Program at London Health Sciences Centre in London, ON from 2002 to 2005. From 2005 to 2007, I was employed as a staff neuropsychologist at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation in Toronto, ON. I have been in my current position as a staff neuropsychologist in the Division of Haematology/Oncology at The Hospital for Sick Children since 2007. Clinical Activities: I provide neuropsychological assessment and consultation services primarily to patients in the Neuro-Oncology, Leukemia/Lymphoma and Sickle Cell Disease programs, although I see patients with other diagnoses as well. I am also coordinator of post-doctoral neuropsychology training in the Department of Psychology. Research: My research focuses on the evaluation and treatment of cognitive deficits associated with medical and neurological disorders. In the past, my work has included studies of the cognitive implications of neuronal migration disorders (e.g., subcortical band heterotopia), seizure disorders, Tourette’s syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). I have co-authored two Cochrane reviews of the effects of nutritional programs for children (e.g., school feeding) on physical and cognitive outcomes. Currently, my research explores the neurocognitive outcomes of children with leukemia, brain tumors and sickle cell disease. In particular, I am interested in individual variables that moderate disease and treatment-related neurocognitive deficits.
