What’s your name, what do you do at Neurocore, and how long have you worked here? My name is Samantha Scholl, I’m a clinical specialist and a center team leader at the Livonia center. I’ve worked at Neurocore for about a year and a half.
What’s something you love about your job? I love completing initial assessments and being a part of a client’s first experience with Neurocore. Our program is designed for a diverse range of people with varying symptoms so I love that each assessment is so uniquely different.
Tell us a bit about your background.Where did you go to school? What did you study? I graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in women’s studies. I was also a Division I athlete on U of M’s rowing team. I moved back to Illinois after undergrad to pursue my MSW at Loyola University Chicago.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned on the job here? Everything and anything related to neurofeedback and how the brain works! I recently became BCIA certified and really appreciate the deeper understanding of neurofeedback that I gained from that process.
If you could visit any era, which would it be and why? I would have to say Chicago during the 1893 World’s Fair. Growing up right outside of Chicago, I have always been interested in the history of the city. My absolute favorite book is The Devil in the White City and I would LOVE to find myself in the middle of the city during this huge event (and murder mystery).
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be? My Italian grandmother’s homemade Manicotti. My family only eats this once a year at Christmas and I dream about it the other 364 days.
