Dr. Reddy received her PhD in clinical psychology from Kent State University and completed a child and adolescent psychology fellowship at the Emory University School of Medicine. Her specialties include adult and pediatric bariatric evaluations and behavior modification related to obesity, chronic disease, and parent-child feeding practices. She has been a psychologist at the Strong4Life Program of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) since 2011. Strong4Life evaluates and treats childhood obesity through a multi-specialty and evidence-based approach. In this position she has often crossed paths with Dr. Mark Wulkan, chief of the Emory division of pediatric surgery and one of CHOA's primary providers of surgical weight loss procedures for adolescents. As the first psychologist to be hired by the Department of Surgery, she will work closely with Dr. Wulkan and other Emory pediatric surgeons and collaborate with them both clinically and on research projects.
