Amy has been providing cancer genetic services to the public since 2005. She has a Masters in Genetic Counselling from the University of Newcastle, Australia, and is a Certified Genetic Counsellor with the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA) and the Canadian Association of Genetic Counsellors (CAGC). She has worked in public health, research, laboratory and consultative genetic counselling roles in Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.

In 2010, Amy permanently returned to her roots in Perth, where her grandmother was born. She is a regular Australian Red Cross plasma donor, and is a foster carer for the Cat Haven in Shenton Park. Amy stays physically and mentally fit through yoga, meditation, and dancing.

For your safety, it is important to be sure that you are getting a specialised service from a qualified provider. More information about the qualification of genetic health professionals in Australia is available through the Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA).
