Since returning to the University of Manitoba in 2021, Angela has had the opportunity to work with research undergraduate students and genetic counselling graduate students.
As a relatively new genetic counsellor, she is happy to share her personal experiences of applying to genetic counselling programs, seeking mentorship, working in the research setting, and identifying/achieving personal career goals.
Angela strives to find a balance of guidance/mentorship and autonomy, in order to allow trainees to thrive in a safe and supportive environment.
