A class trip to a laboratory that does genetic testing and analysis was part of what inspired Anna Cisler to become a genetic counselor.

“I like medicine. I like teaching. I like talking to people,” she said. “So genetic counseling is a perfect combination of those elements.”

Anna enjoys educating patients about genetic conditions so they can make informed decisions about their health and the care they want to receive.

“I talk to patients about how genetic testing works, how we confirm or rule out diagnoses and what the results of a test may mean for them and their families,” Anna said. “If a diagnosis is established, we help coordinate care that patients might need moving forward.”

Anna said her role is to give patients the most complete evaluation she can. It’s also important to allow time for patients to ask questions, Anna said.

Anna earned her bachelor’s degree in genetics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She received her Master of Science in human genetics and genetic counseling from the University of Michigan.

When she’s not working, Anna likes to spend time volunteering, playing volleyball and softball, and doing yoga.
