Dr. Lester co-taught graduate-level courses at Georgia Regents University—Medical College of Georgia, where she completed her fellowship in Neuropsychology.

Dr. Lester earned her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Widener University, with concentrations in neuropsychology and school psychology. While at Widener, she completed pre-doctoral internship rotations at both Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Lester has received numerous honors for her work in neuropsychology, including the Suzanne Reed Price Neuropsychology Award for Distinguished Achievement from Widener University, and the Top 10% Paper Presentation Award from the American Epilepsy Society.

Dr. Lester is a member of the Philadelphia Neuropsychological Society, where she currently serves as president of the board. She is also a member of several national and international associations, including the National Academy of Neuropsychology, the International Neuropsychological Society, and the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology.
