Biosketch

I provide prenatal genetic counseling to patients with a variety of concerns including family history issues, abnormal screening results, abnormal ultrasound findings, advanced maternal age and medication use during pregnancy. I have an active role in the education and training of genetic counseling students, medical students, residents and maternal fetal medicine fellows. My special interests include embryology and the implementation of expanded carrier screening in clinical practice.
