About

Licensed Certified Genetic Counselor

Treatment Philosophy

I feel fortunate to work in the Risk Assessment Program at Fox Chase which has been providing care to families with hereditary cancer for decades. I strive to continue this work by educating individuals and families about their risks for cancer and options for cancer prevention and risk reduction.  As our knowledge of cancer genetics grows, my goal is to translate this complex information in a way that patients can use to empower themselves and their families.  

Genetic testing is available for certain types of cancer, and may help determine if your cancer risk is hereditary, or passed down through your genes. In addition, we provide genetic counseling to help you and your family understand an inherited risk of cancer.

Genetic testing is available for:

  • Breast and ovarian cancer
  • Gastrointestinal cancer
  • Endocrine cancers
  • Kidney cancer
  • Diffuse gastric cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Skin cancers

We offer multigene panels that test for a variety of genes, some of which are specific to a certain type of cancer and others, which are associated with more than one cancer type.
