Today's guest is Janice Berliner. She was a Genetics Counselor for 29 years and is currently working as the Director of the Master of Science in Genetic Counseling Program at Bay Path University! She is also an author and has published 3 books, one nonfiction and two fiction. During today's episode, we learned what Janice has seen and heard regarding food allergies and genetic testing, and that her own daughter has Celiac Disease. The conversation evolved into interesting details of genetic testing, genetic counseling and the possibilities for the future, as well as the two fiction books Janice has written. We both shared behind-the-scenes experiences with writing books, and how each of us came up with our book titles. Spoiler: it's not easy! You can follow Janice on Twitter @janice_berliner.
