Our amazing incredible guest today is the estemed Andrea Zanko, MS, LGC  - Genetic Counselor from UCSF (University of California, San Francisco).

For over 30 years, she has been working with children and adults suspected or known to be affected by or at risk for genetic disorders.  She teaches at the medical school and helps train students and residents in medical genetics.  

Andrea created the UCSF Huntington Disease Genetic Counseling Clinic in 1990 and continues to counsel individuals and families regarding Huntington Disease (HD).  The HD clinic also participates in research in association with the multi-disciplinary team at the USCF Memory and Aging Center.  

Andrea also facilitates a monthly HD support group and writes a column for the Northern California Chapter Nucleus newsletter.    

Andrea has two children, a white lab and a nearly 20 year old cat.  Her daughter is a physician in residency in southern California and her son is an artist still attending school.  For relaxation, Andrea enjoys her family and friends, plays piano and guitar, reads horror novels and listens to the Grateful Dead; for mental and physical stability, she exercises and does yoga.
