What’s your name, what do you do at Neurocore, and how long have you worked here?
My full name is Carlos Luciano Benito Maas and I’m a program specialist at Neurocore’s Boca Raton center. I started as a client advocate a little over two years ago and was a part of the original team that helped open the center in 2016. I do a variety of things ranging from helping out with assessments and working in the brainroom, to assisting with different marketing events.
What’s something you love about your job? What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned on the job here?
My favorite thing about working with Neurocore is probably the fact that I’m able to work with a variety of individuals on a daily basis. This is thanks to the fact that no one is perfect, and neurofeedback can help people with a variety of symptoms without the need for medications. I also really love that Neurocore’s colors are orange and blue – they’ve been my favorite colors since I was little and I’m now surrounded by them every day at the office.
Prior to working at Neurocore, I had never heard of heart-rate variability training. I think it’s so cool because it can have such a strong impact on our lives, given the strong connection that breathing has with the nervous system. I’ve also heard countless times of, and have personally experienced, the positive benefits of regulating our breathing pattern.
Tell us a bit about your background.Where did you go to school? What did you study?
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in psychology, with a concentration in Neuropsychology, from Lynn University here in Boca Raton, Florida.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? How would you say this helps you do your job?
I’m what they call an extroverted introvert. I love being around lots of people and am very outgoing, but I also need my quiet time to relax and recharge. This definitely helps me out because my extroverted side is great at interacting with others and talking to new people every day, while my inner introvert allows me to relate with our more reserved clients.
What’s the nerdiest thing you do in your free time?
I secretly love reading research articles during my free time. I believe that keeping up with all of the latest findings and discoveries is really important so that I can stay knowledgeable and up to date with what’s going on in the scientific community, thus being better able to help others.
