Swartz is a board-certified genetic counselor who works with patients and families through every step of the genetic diagnostic process. She is passionate about educating families about genetics and also helping them work through the complex emotional and psychological feelings that genetic testing can raise.

Working with her patients and families and her genetics colleagues are her favorite parts of her job. Swartz loves pediatric and general genetics because of the opportunities to work with the whole family and to continue to learn about the ever-changing field of genetics.

Swartz is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and and has enjoyed exploring the Hampton Roads area. Outside of work she enjoys doing puzzles, playing games, hiking, biking, playing tennis, and spending time with family and friends. She has a soft spot for all furry animals, especially cats, and loves to spend time spoiling her pets.
