Sarah Hunt is a certified genetic counselor specializing in oncology at Kaiser Permanente Colorado. A recent graduate from ABGC's certified genetic counseling program in December of 2017, she went on to pass her boards in February 2018. Sarah's relationship with genetic counseling evolved through her personal experience with spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SEDc) or skeletal dysplasia.
Because of this experience, Sarah plays an active role in the organization called Little People of America and the expanded scope of the disabled community. Through her career as a certified genetic counselor, Sarah strives to encourage more individuals from the LPA/disability community to consider genetic counseling as a career.
"Being a genetic counselor with a genetic condition is tough sometimes, as my perspective is often totally different than that of others in my profession. I truly believe that my dwarfism is a strength in helping me connect with and advocate for families."
