It is an honor to have Elizabeth Varga as our next guest, for she comes with a decade of exposure in not only genetic counseling but also in breaking the norms and moving towards a non- traditional approach in career growth.

Ms. Varga, LGC is a licensed genetic counselor in the state of Ohio and currently serves as Director of Customer Success at Genomenon Inc.  Liz has over 18 years of experience in the field of genetics and genomics, having worked in areas of prenatal, pediatric and cancer genetics. In February of 2020 Liz transitioned to industry, first as a genomic testing consultant at PerkinElmer Genomics, and later to Genomenon Inc.  Genomenon is a genomics AI biotech company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  As Director of Customer Success, Liz provides customer training, on-boarding and support to customers of the Mastermind Genomic Search Engine, while contributing to the senior management team regarding customer strategy.

Ms Varga also provided genetic counseling and facilitated genetic and genomic testing for patients and families with hereditary blood disorders or suspected hereditary predisposition to cancer. She also served as co-director of the Hematology/Oncology/BMT personalized medicine program and was involved with clinical and research protocols through the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Ms. Varga served on the Board of Directors for the National Society of Genetic Counselors, and has participated in education and advocacy as part of the National Blood Clot Alliance.

Through this seminar we really hope to learn from Ms. Varga on her experience in this profession and on how to progress towards niche or non- traditional pathways in genetics and a lot more.
