Lara Cangir attended the University of Texas, Austin where she received her BSA in Neuroscience.
With her grandmother being a pediatric oncologist, Lara was inspired to spend extensive time with children. She volunteered abroad in the rural areas of Colombia and Turkey, where she submerged herself in orphanages and children's hospitals. It was during these experiences she decided to devote herself to serving the goodwill of others. She continues to dedicate her time locally, at the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Lara spent years working at an OB-GYN private practice in Austin, where she grew passionate about counseling women undergoing vulnerable circumstances with their reproductive health. She witnessed the strength woman carry throughout their development, from puberty through menopause, and became captivated by the female resilience.
Lara came across an electrical stimulation device that has shown benefits in neuromuscular re-education and regaining function-loss due to neurological injuries and illnesses. Enthralled by neurotechnology, she immediately immersed herself alongside neurology physical therapists. Her passion for neuroscience was reignited and she knew she had to give herself to clinical neuroscience.
Lara practices a healthy lifestyle: mind, body, and soul. She loves fitness - whether that be swimming laps, hot yoga, or mountain biking. Hanging with her golden retriever puppy and cuddling her sphynx cat is her ultimate downtime.
She is very excited to combine her interest in neuroscience with clinical therapy. She now works as our Neurofeedback Technician under the direct supervision of Betsy Ezell, M.A., LPC, BCN, at our Austin, Texas location.
