ROCKPORT and YARMOUTH — Neuropsychology and Concussion Management Associates (NCMA) announces the addition of Dr. Katherine Baum to its team of professionals.
“Dr. Katherine Baum, a seasoned neuropsychologist, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to NCMA,” said a news release.
Baum earned her B.S. in Psychology from Plymouth State College, an M.Ed. in Counselor Training from the University of Massachusetts at Boston, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley, California. She is Board certified in neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology (ABN) and currently serves on the ABN Board of Directors.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Kathy Baum to Neuropsychology and Concussion Management Associates,” said Dr. Kendra Bryant, founder of NCMA. “Her wealth of experience, dedication to patient care, and leadership in the field make her a valuable addition to our team.

Baum’s expertise extends to providing neuropsychological evaluations for adolescents, adults, and older adults, with additional proficiency in conducting forensic evaluations, including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA, HIMS certified) evaluations.
“Her passion for enhancing cognitive health aligns seamlessly with NCMA’s mission to provide personalized and evidence-based neuropsychological and psychological care,” said NCMA.
Her journey in neuropsychology began in 1996 during a pre-doctoral internship at the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where she developed an interest in testing and neuropsychological evaluations.
