Thank you for stopping by! I am excited to share this body of work which has been a long time coming. My website was birthed out of a need for greater representation of Black voices within neuropsychology and cognitive aging. Too often our stories and needs are erased entirely or "othered" and deemed less of a priority. With this site, I hope to curate a space that centers the Black experience, fosters community and dialogue, and promotes collective healing regardless of where you fall along the lifespan. Here you will find a breadth of Black experiences -- ranging from my own as a neuropsychologist, to those of our elders who are aging while Black in America, and everything in between. As such, the goals of this website are three-pronged:




To serve as a resource for those interested in pursuing neuropsychology, current students, or new graduates and to explore the nuances of being Black/underrepresented in academic spaces. 

To provide practical, culturally-relevant tools for brain health that integrates science and the unique strengths of being Black to empower aging adults.

To build community through sharing of lived experiences and interests.

I hope you find the future content serves you and generates intellectual exchange of ideas. In the meantime, please check out more about me and my work.
