She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a focus in Neuropsychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University.

Dr. Sheldon provides neuropsychological assessments on individuals with a wide range of neurological disorders, with a focus on those with epilepsy. Her evaluations aim to help patients understand their cognitive strengths and weaknesses and how this may impact daily functioning in order to maximize their quality of life. Additionally, her assessments inform diagnosis and medical treatment planning. Dr. Sheldon works closely with the epilepsy team to ensure that each patient receives the optimal course of treatment for their unique clinical presentation and needs. She also assists with intra- and extra-operative language mappings and Wada procedures.

In addition to clinical work, Dr. Sheldon’s research interests include studying the cognitive sequalae of epilepsy and how neuropsychological assessment can best be utilized in pre-surgical planning.
