Dr. Cox is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon, a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), and holds professional memberships with the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the Oregon Counseling Association (ORCA). A two-sport athlete during her undergraduate education at Western Oregon University, Dr. Cox was always intrigued by the demands on scholar athletes.

She is also involved in ongoing research in the department of neurology investigating novel protocols to enhance brain mapping procedures during awake craniotomies.
