Dr. Coady was born and raised in Alaska. Her undergraduate degrees are from Gustavus Adolphus College. She then attended graduate school at Seattle Pacific University where she graduated with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, completed a neuropsychology internship at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita, and a two year clinical neuropsychology post-doctoral fellowship at the University of California Los Angeles Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the David Geffen School of Medicine where she served as Chief Fellow of Neuropsychology. Her graduate studies and early work focused on a broad array of neurological and psychological disorders, with a special emphasis on pre-surgical evaluation of seizure disorders, including the intracarotid sodium amobarbital procedure (Wada testing) and intraoperative brain mapping. Her extensive training meets the rigorous Houston Conference guidelines outlined by the American Psychological Association for training neuropsychologists.
