ExpertiseGenetic Counseling and Genetic Education
ProfileI received my Master's in Human Genetics from Sarah Lawrence College in 1992 and worked as a pediatric genetic counselor, coordinator of a Neurofibromatosis Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital and in genetic education with the Harvard Medical School-Partners Healthcare Center for Genetics and Genomics until joining the Brandeis Genetic Counseling Program in 2008. I have been involved with the Brandeis GC Program since its inception in varied roles that include clinical supervisor, thesis committee member and co-teacher of the Clinical Genetics course. In my current role as Co-Director of Clinical Training, my focus is on teaching students the fundamentals of genetic counseling and clinical genetics as well as organizing and overseeing their clinical internships.
