Trevor Slaney is a Research Coordinator with Partnerships for Native Health. He was born and raised in Seabeck, Washington, a small community along the Hood Canal on the Kitsap Peninsula. He is an enrolled member of the Nimiipuu people, also known as the Nez Perce tribe. He moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology. Working with Partnerships has blessed him with the opportunity to travel and meet Native healthcare professionals around the country. This experience has solidified his professional aspirations of attending graduate school and earning a PhD in clinical neuropsychology. Trevor’s research interests include traumatic brain injury, sensation and perception, and the neuropsychological effects of substance abuse. He currently works on numerous studies, but is most involved with Rhythm and Timing Exercises for Cerebrovascular Disease in American Indians. This is a randomized clinical trial that examines whether computer-based metronome therapy can improve the cognition of American Indian elders. Trevor is an avid outdoorsman, and loves spending time in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He is also a diehard sports fan of his alma mater and the professional Seattle teams. Besides being outside and playing and watching sports, he also enjoys practicing saxophone, traveling, and attending music shows.
