“I truly enjoy working with athletes and helping them make a return to play, competition, and all their activities to the fullest extent possible,” she says.
Dr. Wicklund also takes care of individuals who have sustained a head injury at work or in a motor vehicle accident.
Dr. Wicklund holds board certification in her specialty of neuropsychology.
