Aura is thrilled to be part of a growing program that is driven by innovation and inclusivity – in terms of people, places, and disciplines – to address an important global health challenge.


Before joining GBHI, Aura worked as a Care Manager Associate, directly supporting home-bound geriatric clients, many of whom suffer from dementia. She also taught Pilates, where she focused on healing through injury, illness, and chronic conditions.


Aura is passionate about supporting new interventions aimed at protecting brain health and improving the quality of life for the aging population around the world.
