Dr. Mikaela Sebree

Pediatric Neuropsychologist, St. Luke's Children's Hospital

I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at University of Idaho and went on to do a master's degree in Counseling Psychology and Addition Studies at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin in August 2006.

My predoctoral internship was completed at The Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado. I completed two-year postdoctoral residency in pediatric neuropsychology at Children's Hospital, Boston/Harvard Medical School. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I conducted research with Debbie Waber, Ph.D., exploring the long-term neurocognitive outcomes of children treated for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

I am currently on staff at St. Luke's Children's Hospital in Boise. Outside of work, I have an adorable little pug named Jaxson who keeps me on my toes!
