I'm the Founder and CEO of QK Consulting. I earned my PhD in Psychology at Stanford University and completed my postdoctoral training in Cognitive Aging at the Stanford School of Medicine.
My training and 20 plus years of research experience in investigating factors that affect older adults’ decision-making, memory, and performance have shown me that we do have some control over our brain health.
My goal in launching QK Consulting is driven by my passion to facilitate and enable middle-aged and older adults to maximize their late-life cognitive health.
