Faculty Appointments


Celeste Schepp Wyman (formerly D'Amanda) received her master's degree in genetic counseling from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and National Human Genome Research Institute joint training program in January, 2017. After graduating, she provided genetic counseling and facilitated genetic testing for patient-participants seen in the Ophthalmic Genetics and Visual Function Branch of the National Eye Institute in Bethesda, MD.

Ms. Wyman then relocated to her hometown of Rochester, NY, and joined URMC. She initially worked with patients and providers to maximally utilize genetic testing in evaluating possible underlying genetic causes for a variety of different health conditions through the adult general genetics clinic. She currently provides genetic counseling for patients and families with ocular genetic conditions seen at Flaum Eye Institute. She counsels patients to promote adaptation to risks, conditions, and familial implications.

She is highly engaged in the UR genetic counseling master's program and has additional special interests in genetics public policy and genetics evaluation in retinoblastoma and inherited retinal disease.
