What is your education?

Why do you work with ARVD/C patients?
I have been given an amazing opportunity working with such a devoted group of patients and families affected by a rare inherited heart condition. While trying to find new ways to adapt to life as a patient or family member living with ARVD/C, these individuals and families still find time to participate in our very important research. I am extremely grateful to all who have shared their own story of living with ARVD/C, as well as those who have shared the memory of a loved one lost to ARVD/C. It has been a pleasure and honor to work with these families over the years and I look forward to many more years as we continue to work together to solve the mysteries of ARVD/C.
What else do you want people to know about you?
I am a member of the National Society of Genetic Counselors
