Deanna Hutchinson, MS, CGC
Genetic Counselor with Genzyme
I've been with Genzyme for almost 3 years. I really like my job. I like working with patients. I think I have an advantage over other genetic counselors who may not have had the focus on genetics and lab work that I did in undergrad. It definitely helps in explaining diseases and genetic testing to patients. I love the fact that my job allows me to use the knowledge I have about genetics to help my patients. I love science, and I also love working with people, so I have the best of both worlds in my career.

I am excited to graduate in June of 2010 and I am hoping to pursue a residency program in Family Medicine.
