I am a certified genetic counselor and the President and CEO of My Gene Counsel (mygenecounsel.com), a company that specializes in scalable, updating, digital genetic counseling. My Gene Counsel’s mission is to make genetic test results easy to understand and use by both consumers and clinicians, and to provide ongoing updates tied to these results. I founded the Cancer Genetic Counseling Program at Yale School of Medicine, and served as its Director for 18 years and was a longtime faculty member at the medical school. In 2013, I was a plaintiff in the seminal BRCA gene patent case, which was unanimously decided in our favor by the U. S. Supreme Court, and which set the stage for the rapid nationwide growth of affordable genetic testing. (Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics). I am the author of Cancer Principles and Practice of Oncology: Handbook of Clinical Cancer Genetics, and have published numerous scientific articles and book chapters in genetics. I’m also a frequent media consultant in all things genetics and genomics, work closely with patient advocates, and am a regular lecturer on genetics, direct-to-consumer testing, and women in science and business.
