I am an experienced neuroscience researcher that has worked with the military and universities to explore cognitive neuroscience and human performance. Since 2016, I have conducted biofeedback, neurofeedback, and quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) trainings, as well as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (RTMS) treatments on Special Operations Forces (SOF) veterans. I have provided undergraduate and graduate level instruction on data-based insights using qualitative and quantitative research methods on a wide range of human issues. My research has been focused on attitude measurement, employee assessment, leadership, organizational development, intelligence, personality, neuropsychological issues, and psychometrics.

I am a previous member of the Army’s Special Forces Unit. I then pursued my education to become a Doctor of Philosophy with a specialization in talent performance optimization. I also hold a Bachelor of Psychology degree, a Masters of Arts in Developmental Psychology degree, and a Masters of Arts in Clinical Neuropsychology degree.

My passion for healing the body and mind has been my driving force in pursuing as much education as I can. I want to make a difference in the neuro-field by spreading the knowledge I have, as well as continuing my research on optimal performance. 

Specialized in the following :

Client Populations: Military and First Responder Cognitive and Optimal Performance, PTSD, TBI, Stress, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Sleep, Addiction, Learning and Developmental Disabilities, and Epilepsy 

Hardware & Software:  Hardware: Thought Technology, Mitsar, iMediSync, BrainMaster, Cognionics, MindMedia, and other most commonly used industry systems. Software:  WinEEG, iMediSync’s iBrain and iHeart, BrainMaster, BioTrace, Neuroguide, etc.

Languages Spoken: English
