Dr. Armstrong is a Clinical Neuropsychologist with experience in health care, occupational rehabilitation, and education. Formerly a School Psychologist in New York State, her early interest in students with learning disabilities grew into her fascination with brain and behavior. While working in corporate educational publishing and student services for the past 15 years, her personal meditation practice evolved and she was drawn to the Mindfulness program at Lesley where she completed the Certificate program in 2014.
She returned for a professional involvement with the Lesley Graduate Program in Mindfulness Training in the Fall of 2016 as a teaching assistant and became an Adjunct Professor in Summer 2017. Her personal goals are to further engage in the development of Lesley’s students and in outreach to the broader Lesley and academic community regarding the benefits of this program. A researcher in her previous academic setting at the University of Rochester (NY) Medical School, she hopes to bring these skills to the Lesley program. Her current interests include Contemplative Neuroscience, and Mindfulness as applied in medical and educational settings.
