"Portfolio" of my skills, duties and accomplishments as
Genetic Counselor / Research Coordinator
while at the
Orange County Cancer Education and Research Foundation

Because my then-supervisor no longer works and the OCCERF no longer exists, I realize that there is a gap for checking referrals and vetting my experience from my time at this position. I discovered that I had saved a number of documents and other materials from this period. I thought that these would help to illustrate my experience in developing and operating these programs. For that reason, I have scanned and assembled a "portfolio" of these saved materials, to demonstrate my skills, duties and accomplishments, and to supplement the information provided in my resume.

Progress Report, Risk Assessment Program/Study

I wrote the text of this report. I developed the study in collaboration with the other authors. Of that described in the report, I developed the bulk of the materials—study design, surveys, questionnaires, patient and provider educational materials, etc.—and carried out the consultations, risk assessments, data collection and analysis, with some support from the other authors.
