My Areas of Practice
As a certified genetic counselor at the Park Nicollet Perinatal Clinic, I feel privileged to work with women/couples who are starting or expanding their family.  I do my best to personalize my care so that I can provide accurate, up to date information to help those naviagting the world of prenatal screening and testing.  I enjoy meeting with patients during, or prior to, pregnancy who are concerned about potential family history risk factors, abnormal maternal screening or prenatal testing results, prior pregnancy/child concerns, couples with unexplained recurrent miscarriage and other indications.  I can provide a thorough discussion of genetic risk assessment, education, evaluation and/or testing options if warranted. Connecting individuals in need of support resources and advocacy is a major component to the genetic counseling process.

Personal

Prenatal screening/testing is a unique area of medicine where women and their partners are able to have an active role in their health care and ultimately decide what information is helpful to them in assuring the health of a developing baby. I enjoy helping patients sort through the information and help them make informed decisions. In my spare time, I enjoy yoga, cross country skiing and spending time with my husband and my children.
