Patient Care Bio
As a genetic counselor in the Department of Pediatrics, I work with a multidisciplinary team to provide information and support to patients and families who are at risk for a genetic condition or who have a genetic condition. I help patients understand genetics and inheritance, the genetic testing process, genetic testing results, and possible implications for themselves and their family members. I also provide supportive counseling and serve as an advocate. Most importantly, I make sure the needs of each patient are met.
