Clark is a genetic counselor who works with families and individuals with genetic disorders or who are at-risk for such conditions. She gains an understanding of the underlying causes of genetic disorders, helps interprets this information with families, and helps families be prepared for their future by providing support and resources. She also handles all aspects of genetic testing.

Her interest in genetic counseling was inspired by her educational experiences and volunteer work. She is passionate about working in pediatric and general genetics to serve as a resource to families and health professionals about genetics. Genetic counseling allows her to stay current with medicine and research as well as create lasting supportive relationships with her patients.
