Janice L. Berliner
Genetic Counselor

Janice has been a board certified genetic counselor for more than 32 years, having earned her Master of Science in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling from the University of Michigan. She has written several book chapters, published a number of scholarly articles, and edited a book entitled Ethical Dilemmas in Genetics and Genetic Counseling: Principles through Case Scenarios. Brooke's Promise was her first work of fiction, and In Good Conscience is her latest.

This fall, Janice will be honored by her alma mater with the Diane Baker Alumni Lecture Award, given in honor of Diane’s contributions to the genetic counseling profession. It honors graduates who embody the ambition and ideals of the University of Michigan’s Genetic Counseling Program. This annual event provides a unique opportunity for genetic counseling trainees to learn from University of Michigan alumni who are national leaders in genetic counseling. Janice lives in New Jersey with her husband of nearly 31 years, and has three amazing adult children. Sadly, none of them has any interest in science or writing!
