Professional profile

I am a UK registered genetic counsellor as well as being certified in the USA. I am the lead genetic counsellor at NW Thames Regional Genetics centre in the NHS and leads a team of genetic counsellors covering North London, Hertfordshire, and Bedfordshire. In addition, to my work in the NHS I am the Genetic Director for Gene Health UK, advising on genetic policies and testing.

I am also an honorary clinical lecturer at Imperial College London and teach cancer risk assessment to allied healthcare professionals with Kings University. I am also a mentor to genetic counsellors.

I am a medical advisor for a popular BBC drama series ensuring accurate genetic storylines. I have appeared on local health television programmes in Connecticut, US and have been featured on multiple radio broadcasts. I am involved with Ovarian Cancer Action, Breast Cancer Break Through and developing the future genetic testing decision pathways.

I have worked with numerous specialists in the identification of individuals at risk of hereditary cancer and my work on genetics has been published. I previously led the cancer genetics department at Stamford Hospital in the US and launched the first colorectal cancer registry in the state of Conneticut.
