I believe that an educated patient is an empowered patient. Empowered patients make decisions that are aligned with their lifestyle and values, ultimately resulting in the best outcomes for their families. I strive to ensure that patients understand genetic information and its implications, so they can make decisions regarding their pregnancy.

- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical interests include working with families to prenatally diagnose genetic syndromes. I am particularly interested in helping families whose pregnancy has been found to have fetal anomalies. Depending on the constellation of anomalies present, I inform families regarding what diagnoses may be most likely, as well as the genetic testing options that are available to them. I interpret genetic testing results for families to understand the impact of the genetic findings. I frequently come across rare chromosomal abnormalities and have embraced whole exome sequencing, which is a new genetic testing technology in the prenatal setting.
