In her role as Program Assistant, Amelia provides support to the Expecting Health team and the Baby's First Test website. After growing up in the Bay Area, she moved to Portland, OR for school and graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 2014 with a B.A. in Psychology and Hispanic Studies.
Prior to joining Genetic Alliance, Amelia worked in a behavioral neuroscience lab at Oregon Health & Sciences University. She aspires to get her Master's in Genetic Counseling and use her bilingual skills to serve a diverse population of patients and families. Out of the office, she enjoys spending time at the beach, hiking, listening to NPR podcasts, and exploring DC's vibrant culture and gastronomy. Amelia also loves to travel and hopes to return to Chile, where she lived briefly during college, in the near future.
