Carrie Turban Kahn, PsyD
Thanks so much for visiting our website and reading about our staff. My name is Dr. Carrie Turban Kahn. I am married to Dr. Kahn. We are excited to bring the first endovascular outpatient medical center to Western Massachusetts!
I am a local -- born and raised in Western Massachusetts. Of course, I am a loyal New England Patriots fan! I graduated cum laude from Mount Holyoke College with a double major in Psychology and Education. There, I ran Track and Field for the Lyons and graduated as an All-American Scholar. I still hold a few track records, but I won’t disclose for how many years they’ve stood…
Following college, I pursued my dream of becoming a licensed clinical psychologist. I earned a master’s degree and doctorate in clinical psychology, interned at the Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency Program in Concord, New Hampshire, and completed my post-doctoral training at The University of Virginia Behavioral Medicine Department in Charlottesville, Virginia. Behavioral Medicine is my specialty.
My husband and I are raising three girls whose ages range from 3-11. We have two dogs (a 13-year-old rescued black lab and a greater swiss mountain puppy aged 7 months). If I am not working at our medical center, you’ll find me taxiing my girls to and from their ever-increasing school activities. I’m the car with the bumper sticker that reads: “Mom’s Taxi” -- give me a wave when you see me!
In my not-so-free time, I love reading, traveling, trying new cooking recipes, and boating with my family.
Lori Hathaway Towsley, RN
I was born and raised in the Berkshires. After graduating from a local community college with an AS of Science in nursing, I have worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years!
My experience is vast –
- 16 years working in the ICU/CCU at Berkshire Medical Center
- 7 years working at Hartford Hospital in Open Heart ICU (2 year) and Cardiac Cath lab (5 years)
- 5 years serving as a travel nurse in Cardiac Cath labs, Vascular Interventional, and Interventional Radiology labs in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and even New Mexico
- 7 years working at Baystate Medical Center in the Open-Heart ICU (1.5 years) and Heart and Vascular Operating Rooms (6 years)
I specialize in interventional work and have additional certification in Moderate Sedation. I truly enjoy being a nurse and working with my patients and families every day -- I can’t think of anything more rewarding!
I am married to my best friend and husband, Ken, for almost 5 years now. We have 3 children (Christian, Shannon, and Kenny) and 2 grandchildren (Alaina, 10 and Landen, 10 months). We also have 2 Yorkipoos named Bentley and Mercedes (AKA “our two boys) who keep us amused and make us smile every day.
We recently moved to country living in Massachusetts to enjoy peace, quiet, and tranquility. My husband and I believe that avid exercising keeps us young and healthy. In our free time and when the New England weather permits, we enjoy riding our Harley Motorcycles.

My name is Amanda Methe. I live in my hometown of Ludlow, MA. I'm fluent in Portuguese - I truly get excited when I get the opportunity to speak to patients in their native tongue. My husband, Jared, and I love anything that involves the outdoors, photography, brewing beer, home renovation projects, and cooking together. We enjoy traveling and immersing ourselves in different cultures.
I graduated from Holyoke Community College where I obtained my Associate’s Degree in Radiologic Sciences in 2011. I completed my clinical internship at Holyoke Hospital and Mercy Medical Center. After completing my schooling, I worked at Riverbend Medical Group performing plain film x-rays and bone density exams. In 2014, I was cross-trained in Vascular and Interventional Radiology (VIR). We start with diagnostic images and, when indicated, perform minimally invasive treatments during the same visit. As a result of the ever-evolving advancements in the VIR, it has given patients a day-stay treatment option with minimal blood loss, less risks, less pain, and short recovery times as compared to a traditional surgical approach. I want my patients to know that each patient will be in the best hands and receive personalized high-level care.
Jennifer Perreault, R.T.(R)
I graduated from the Radiologic Technologist program at Springfield Technical Community College in 2013. I have worked as an x-ray tech in a hospital-based setting for over 4 years. Patient satisfaction and building patient trust are very important to me! I treat every patient with kindness, and I give them my full, undivided attention. I am here to help heal and treat everyone who needs it.
I love to spend time with my future husband and my 5-year-old beagle. Working on home projects, camping, and spending time with our families are the activities that help relax me. I am thankful to be apart of the NEEC family.
Hamad Saleh, RT
I am a graduate of Springfield Technical Community College where I completed the Vascular and Interventional Radiological Technologist Program. While in training, I earned the “Excellence in Patient Safety Award.” I have been working as a Radiological Technologist since 2014. I chose this line of work because I love patient care – my job is hands-on and I get to help fix problems. Our patients are happy with their results and are grateful that we helped improve their quality of life!
I was born in Lebanon. My family moved to the United States in 2005; later, I became a US citizen. I am fluent in both Lebanese and English. I am currently living in Springfield, Massachusetts with my family. I am a huge soccer fan – Barcelona is my favorite team! In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, swimming, spending time with friends and family, and eating Lebanese food.
Brittney Twohig, RT
I am a certified Vascular Interventional Radiographer and have been working professionally in the field since 2013. I grew up in Western Massachusetts and currently reside in the area. After graduating from high school, I received two associates degrees from Springfield Technical Community College; one in general studies and the other in diagnostic medical imaging. Upon completing my clinical experience at Baystate Medical Center, I achieved the “Excellence in Patient Care Award.” After an additional year of school, I successfully graduated from Westfield State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. For fun, I like to travel, hang out with friends by a bonfire, and play card games.
Cyndi Twohig, Office Manager
I am excited to join Dr. Kahn’s team -- I love the medical field and helping others! Over the past 35 years, I have worked as a Surgical Assistant and Practice Manager for a bustling oral surgery practice. I also served in the United States Airforce Reserves for 6 years.
I was born and raised in Holyoke, Massachusetts. I currently live in Feeding Hills with my husband of 30 years. We have three children (a daughter aged 26 and two sons aged 21 and 14). I am an animal lover and currently have two pets -- a Border Collie named Stoli and a turtle named Rocket.
I am lucky to have a large extended family all of whom live locally. We love spending time together and celebrating holidays. For over 50 years, we have vacationed together at Wells Beach in Maine.
In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, running, listening to country music, doing gymnastics and Zumba, party planning, and watching my favorite movies (i.e., Titanic, Pretty Woman, and Miss Congeniality). Every year, I participate in the Rugged Maniac Obstacle Course! I love Thai and Chinese cuisine and have a weakness for cheesecake and Sour Patch Kids. I am a big fan of the New England sports teams, especially the Red Sox and player Dustin Pedroia.
I am one of the friendly faces you will see while checking in and out at the front desk -- I am happy to help you! Prior to joining Dr. Kahn’s team, I have worked in the medical field for over 18 years in the areas of front desk and office management, patient scheduling, insurance verification, and the general coordinating of office workflow. I am a Certified Medical Assistant, and I have worked at several medical practices, including orthopedics, general practice, and pain management. In addition, I have an educational background in physical therapy, and I am a Certified Physical Therapy Aide. Prior to diving into the medical field, I worked as an Order Selector for Hallmark Cards.
While I was born in Georgia, my family and I moved up north when I was 7 months old, so I really consider myself a New Englander. My family and I live locally in Western Massachusetts. I am happily married for over 28 years. My husband and I raised two girls, one is a college graduate and one is a senior in college! In my free time, I love spending time with family and relaxing.
