What do you like most about being a Genetic Counselor?
“Genetics has always fascinated me—I guess you could say I’m a “science nerd”. Genetic counseling allows me to stay engaged with cutting-edge science while having meaningful interactions with individuals and their families. I learn something new almost every day but helping a person navigate complex medical information and providing support is truly rewarding.”
