Who is all this wit and wisdom coming from?
Dr. Ahmad Vahedian, PhD, QME is a Board Certified Neuropsychologist with more than twenty-five years of experience in his field. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Psychotherapists and Psychodiagnosticians, and an Alumnus of the University of Arizona, with an advanced fellowship in Neuropsychology at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is also an Agreed Medical Examiner and runs a private practice, Behavioral, Medicine and Health Psychology, in Ventura, California. He has three children and a beautiful wife, and enjoys travel, hiking and family time
Kelly McCardy-Fuller is a freelance writer with a degree in Journalism, Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. She has written countless reports, journals, articles and peer publications in the Neuropsychology field with Dr. Vahedian, as well as penned their first book, Dealing With Depression On Your Own Couch; A Neuropsychologist’s Practical Guide. Kelly has previous experience in hospitality management, technical editing and fitness instruction. She is currently working as a freelance/ghost writer, and is penning her first novel. She has two children and a wonderful husband, and enjoys travel, sports and volunteer work in her community.
While I, Kelly, am the voice of the blog (and most of the wit), Ahmad’s wisdom is plentiful throughout. Dr. Vahedian is and always has been 100% devoted to patient care. In other words, he is always extremely busy. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I have been able to share his wisdom, and a good deal of my own, through the written word.
He and I first met on a beach in Oxnard, California where we both lived. After several conversations we became friends, and he revealed his profession to me, joking that he should have been charging me $80 per hour for all of his advice. After my employer transferred me out of California, we kept in touch via snail-mail (just aged myself). As every writer knows, all of your friends constantly ask you to write or edit things for them. It’s an occupational hazard. Consequently, I gladly helped edit and compose publications for Ahmad from time to time, and a symbiotic working relationship that lasted sixteen years developed from there.
