Research Interests

I am a pediatric cancer genetic counselor with an interest in utilizing genomic technology to better identify individuals who have a predisposition to develop cancer. I believe that by further elucidating the underlying genetic causes that precipitate malignancies, we can better tailor treatment and prevention for our patients and their families.

Specific research focuses include:

  • Best measures for facilitating informed decisions among individuals utilizing genomic services
  • Impact of personal/familial genetic information on individuals’ health behaviors, life-style choices, and self-esteem
  • Age-appropriate tools and strategies for parents/guardians to discuss genetic information with children
