Where did you grow up?
I grew up in London, Ontario, and Canada.
Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I was introduced to the field of genetics during a high school rotation and I have been fascinated with the subject ever since. As a doctor, I am grateful to be able to help patients and families navigate on what it means to have a family member with a genetic condition.
How long have you practiced in the Washington, DC area and what do you like most about it?
I love the balance of culture, diversity, nature and easy accessibility.
What do you most enjoy doing outside of your clinical practice, when you’re not working?
I spend time with my husband and two sons, hiking, playing outdoors, traveling on weekend trips and eating delicious local food.
