"As a medical genetics and genomics doctor, I look at the details of a patient's medical and developmental history to create a "big picture" to help with genetics' diagnostic and management aspects."

My Biography & Research

Biography

As a medical geneticist, I recognize genetic disorders and congenital disabilities, arrange for proper treatment, and help the patient and family understand and cope with the diagnosis. I find working with genetic disorders fascinating because they draw on the knowledge of anatomy, embryology, physiology and biochemistry.

A positive experience in medical school as a policy intern at the Washington, D.C. office of the American Academy of Pediatrics steered me toward this specialty. I liked the diagnostic aspect of genetics and thought working in a pediatric specialty would be a way to advocate for children and children's health. However, I now work in a specialty area that cares for people of all ages.

As a medical genetics and genomics doctor, I look at the details of a patient's medical and developmental history to create a "big picture" to help with genetics' diagnostic and management aspects. Patients and their families should understand that a thorough genetic evaluation often takes time. Genetic evaluations can be straightforward in some instances, while others are more complex and time intensive.

In my spare time, I enjoy roller skating and riding my bicycle.
