Biography

My goal as a genetic counselor is to help individuals and their families understand symptoms of a disease, work to establish a diagnosis, and recognize hereditary disease risks so that patients are able to make informed choices about their healthcare. The decision to undergo genetic testing to establish a diagnosis in symptomatic individuals or for predictive/pre-symptomatic purposes can be a complicated (and sometimes emotional) journey. I help patients and their families understand their genetic testing options, while providing them with the care, information, and support they need throughout their personal decision-making process.
