Imagine. Educate. Elevate.

Neuroscience from both sides

Who am I?

I am a neuroscientist, writer, meditation teacher, and speaker. I specialize in neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative disorders and translate the promise of neuroscience and positive psychology for individuals to live the best quality of life. I am dedicated to enhancing lives through a holistic approach that integrates development of positive thought processes, cultivation of self-compassion and awareness of bodily sensations with our environment.


My mother’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) propelled me to study and research PD, launching my lifelong dedication to broad scientific training in neuroscience, physiology and behavior at UC Davis, UCLA and Caltech.  My latest research efforts focus on the neurodiversity, which encompasses the brain and body experiences of unique thinkers.


I am a scientist and writer who knows “both sides” of the knowledge I have gained through my research studies; I am both a passionate intellectual and a devoted caregiver looking to help people I love.  I firmly believe that a healthy body and healthy mind have to work in unity for each of us to reach our highest potential.  My mission is to deliver accurate information so you can choose the best practices to live a happy and healthy life.
