My goal is to help patients understand the medical and familial implications of genetic cardiovascular disease. As part of the Cardiovascular Genetics team, I work alongside the physicians to provide complex genetic information to our patients in a way that is easy to understand. I also strive to support the informational, emotional, and psychosocial needs of my patients, and aid as an advocate throughout their diagnostic journey.
