Logan Karris,

I have been a prenatal genetic counselor at UVA for the past 18 years. Prior to that time I lived in the Bay Area of San Francisco. Most of the patients I see are pregnant or contemplating a pregnancy. In addition to my clinical work, I have an interest in teaching, research and biomedical ethics.
