Research Interests

I am doing research that will help us understand why cancer happens more commonly in some families than in others, which cancer types are associated with a hereditary risk for cancer, how emotional, social, and ethical factors influence individuals and their family members in regards to genetic testing for cancer risk during childhood, and what screening and prevention strategies are the most effective for detecting early, or preventing, future cancers, tumors, or blood disorders that individuals and/or their family members may develop.

Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include cancer and blood disorder genetic counseling, or talking with families about how a personal or family history of cancer or blood disorders can impact their, or their children's health. I help with the entire process of genetic testing: before, during, and after. My goal is to help families identify strategies for early detection or prevention of future health problems. For more information, please see the Cancer Predisposition Clinic Webpage: https://www.childrenscolorado.org/doctors-and-departments/departments/cancer-and-blood-disorders/programs/cancer-predisposition-clinic/

Personal Interests
In my personal time, I am usually busy taking care of my 3 amazing children. I have played, coached, and officiated soccer, and I enjoy running and socializing. I am a University of Michigan alumnus too, Go Blue!

Volunteer Activities
I am dedicated to helping students learn about the opportunities for a career in genetic counseling. I am always happy to talk to or meet with prospective students, and I have spent much of my career working on diversity and inclusion efforts.

Public Speaking
Yes
I have spoken on a variety of cancer and bone marrow failure genetic counseling topics including issues related to the ethics of genetic testing in minors, psychosocial considerations, clinical topics and rare syndromes, how I started and built a new pediatric clinical service, somatic vs germline genetic testing, research and manuscript review, etc.
