How Arcadia Influenced My Path

Arcadia provided such a wide range of opportunities to explore all genetic counseling specialties. I knew from my first clinical rotation that I wanted to be a prenatal counselor. I was able to select clinical sites that met my interests in order to land a great prenatal position right after graduation.

Greatest Achievement

When I first started at my current position over fourteen years ago, patients were not routinely receiving genetic testing that is recommended in pregnancy. I am most proud of implementing and continually updating procedures and protocols to ensure that every patient has equal access to prenatal genetic testing and counseling services.
