When not in class, I'm probably focused on board games, puzzles, binge-watching a TV series, or completing a volunteer shift at Crisis TextLine.

I joined the Genetic Counseling Club last year so that I could get a better understanding of what this field entailed and what it required. I wasn't expecting to find a home in such a kind, diverse group of students who shared my passion for genetics and patient care.

I joined Genetic Counseling Club looking for a safe space on campus and to find some clarity about my future in the field of genetic counseling. The club exceeded my expectations in providing a sense of community and the knowledge I have acquired. The relationships I have established have been my main source of motivation and inspiration throughout my undergrad.

After discovering I had the precursor for Fragile X Syndrome I felt a personal connection to the field of genetic counseling. I joined the GCC because genetic counseling is a small field and it’s hard to network on your own. The GCC has introduced me to peers who share my same aspirations and a community of genetic counselors who I can reach out to for advice!
