Dr. Felix earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology at Marquette University, as well as a master’s degree and doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology. She completed fellowship training in pediatric rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology at the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers; in addition to research and clinical fellowships at the University of New Mexico and the Alexian Brothers Medical Center, Neurosciences Institute.
“I was initially inspired to become a doctor in order to help others and promote wellness,” said Dr. Felix. “Over time, I have been inspired by the strength and resilience of my patients and their families when faced with challenging diagnoses, illnesses and injuries.”
She will provide neuropsychological assessments for pediatric patients at the clinic, as well as one day a week at Mid-Valley Children’s Clinic and one day a week at Samaritan Pediatrics – Corvallis.
Dr. Felix enjoys spending time with her family and being outdoors, camping, hiking, doing yoga, gardening and running.
Dr. Jackson earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and master’s and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from the University of Windsor. She completed fellowship training in neuropsychology, neuro-oncology and developmental disabilities at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
“I chose Samaritan because it is a nonprofit that is invested in serving its community,” said Dr. Jackson. “I really love learning about people and helping them better understand themselves.”
In addition to seeing adult patients at Samaritan Neuropsychology – Albany, she will see patients at Samaritan Family Medicine – Geary Street two days each week.
“My new colleague at Samaritan Neuropsychology, Dr. Robert Fallows, has studied the effectiveness of having neuropsychology available within the primary care clinics,” said Dr. Jackson. “This makes getting a neuropsychological evaluation very convenient for patients and increases the likelihood that evaluations will occur when needed and appropriate treatment can be recommended. I am excited to be able to bring care to patients in this way.”
Away from the office, Dr. Jackson enjoys hiking, rock climbing, water sports and reading.
Dr. Felix and Dr. Jackson are both taking new patients by referral. For more information, call Samaritan Neuropsychology - Albany at 541-812-5760.
