Capital Genetics

I was the first certified genetic counsellor to train and work in New Zealand, following a brief stint in research and as a cytogeneticist in what is now the Wellington Regional Genetic Laboratory (WRGL). While I consider myself a dinosaur of New Zealand genetics, the reality of working in the field of genetics is the need to constantly update oneself around the application and implications of new technologies. It is this variety and the ever-increasing ability to answer people’s questions and concerns about their health and the health of their families that I love most.

I work privately for Capital Genetics Group in Wellington, based at Riddiford Medical Specialists.
