Mimi Wong – Membership Committee Chair
Mimi Wong, PhD, was born in Guangzhou China, and immigrated to the USA with her family when she was about 8 yrs old. As she progressed in her clinical training, she learned that not only were there few psychological and neuropsychological resources available to the Chinese and Asian American patient population, there was also little peer or mentor support for those training to serve this population.
This led to a journey of seeking out and helping to create a new community, the Asian Neuropsychological Association, with the shared vision of providing excellent culturally sensitive neuropsychological services for all individuals of Asian descent. For fun, she likes to play tennis, badminton, snowboard, travel, and enjoy time with family and friends.
Jasdeep Hundal – Member
Jasdeep Hundal, Psy.D., ABPP-CN, is of Asian-Indian descent and was born and raised in the Indian State of Punjab before immigrating to the US and settling in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I am conversationally fluent in Punjabi and Hindi and have a working knowledge of Urdu. A graduate of Roosevelt University, I completed an internship at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York followed by a fellowship at the JFK-Johnson Rehabilitation Institute’s Center for Head Injuries in New Jersey.
My clinical practice is varied, and, while I see the full range of neurological disorders, my particular interest is in sports concussion/mTBI, epilepsy, movement disorders, and dementia. I take an active role in training externs, interns, residents, and fellows in neuropsychology, psychiatry, and neurology. My treatment philosophy emphasizes a comprehensive integrative approach to the diagnosis and management of brain-based disorders.
