Psychology is still in its infancy in the Caribbean and my intention with this blog is to educate and inform on the importance of psychology in our every day lives. I am a Neuropsychologist and my work takes me worldwide, where I offer psychological and Neuropsychological diagnostic assessments and rehabilitation.
I graduated with a BSc. (Hons) in Psychology in the first cohort of psychology majors from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. I completed an accelerated M.Sc. in Cognitive Science at the University of Birmingham in England, where I conducted research on behalf of NASA in the psychological aspects of movement disorders. I returned to Jamaica in 1999 and advocated for the development of a PhD in Clinical Psychology. In 2006, I became the first graduate of the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of the West Indies.
I love the people I meet in Neuropsychology and I am obsessed by the 3 pound universe in our heads. I realized the Caribbean desperately needed qualified professionals in this highly specialized field, so I went on to post-doctoral training in Neuropsychology at Emory University in Atlanta and Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.
I am a neuropsychologist in private practice in Jamaica providing diagnostic and rehabilitation services in Neuropsychology and Psychology for adults and children .
I enjoy world travel, food, a good book, great vino and good company.. oh not to mention a cool river.
