Genetic Counselor, Cancer Genetics Program
Amanda joined Inova in June 2015 as a clinical cancer genetic counselor after receiving her Master of Science degree in genetic counseling with distinction from Arcadia University in May 2015.
She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from James Madison University in 2011.
Amanda’s interest in genetics began in high school and she found her passion for cancer genetic counseling during a summer internship as an undergraduate. As a genetic counselor she enjoys learning the unique stories of every patient and their family and providing them with support through the genetic testing process. Amanda appreciates how genetic counseling and testing can help empower patients and allow them to be proactive in managing their own health.
Amanda is an active member of the National Society of Genetic Counselors, including the Familial Cancer Special Interest Group. At a time when the field of cancer genetics is growing and advancing at a rapid pace, Amanda is excited to be part of a healthcare system that is a leader in developing and applying personalized health. Amanda sees patients at both Inova Fair Oaks Hospital and Inova Loudoun Hospital. When she is not seeing patients Amanda enjoys running with her dog, Rocky, and trying out new recipes.
