Alice leads the committed team of Genetic Counsellors to provide exceptional individualised care for our patients. In her clinical work as a Genetic Counsellor, she provides information and support for patients regarding preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), genetic carrier screening, family history risk assessments and related areas of reproductive genetics. Alice has a particular focus on supporting couples who are seeking IVF with PGT due to an increased risk of having a child with a genetic or chromosome condition. She believes in the importance of informed decision making and enjoys assisting couples to understand complex information about genetic testing and risk in the context of their own unique circumstances.
