She obtained a post-doctoral specialization in neuropsychology. A particular area of interest is prevention of dementia and cognitive decline.
Dr. Hughes has been working for Monument Health in the Neuropsychology Department for almost ten years and is thrilled to be moving into private practice to further expand her professional interests as of January 1, 2022.
