Mary E. Haines, Ph.D. 

Practice Location and type:
I work at the University of Toledo Medical Center, an academic medical center, and I'm a Clinical Professor in PM&R and Psychiatry.  I also have a per diem appointment for a local medical group, providing Wada evaluations.

Please tell us about your professional practice:
I am a Lifespan Neuropsychologist and see patients ages 7 and older.  My clinical interests include FAS, TBI, and dementia.  I am also the Director of Clinical Training for our Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellowship, which is a member of APPCN.  

What activities do you enjoy outside of work?
I may be the only Neuropsychologist who is also a Jazzercise instructor!

Why did you join NAN?
I have been a member of NAN since I was in graduate school.  I have always appreciated the emphasis that NAN places on assisting the clinician with all aspects of practice and proudly served on the NAN Professional Affairs and Information Committee a few years ago.

Do you have any advice to offer or anything else you’d like to add?
One thing that I have found to be critical during COVID 19 is to keep open communication with my team.  This is frequently undertaken virtually during the pandemic, but it is so necessary to keep that connection with each other.
