MGH Nerve Unit

I attended Stonehill College, graduating with a B.S. in Biology, followed by a Certificate in Medical Technology from Newton-Wellesley Hospital. For over 10 years, I have been employed by MGH as a histologist.

Currently, I oversee the Nerve Injury Unit which is a clinical lab that specializes in the diagnosis of small fiber polyneuropathy within the neurology department. We also do research looking at causes of small fiber polyneuropathy that is not diabetic in nature.
