Kristen Ewald

Kristen grew up in Oxford, MI and graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn in 2019 with a BA in Behavioral and Biological Sciences. During her time at UofM she contributed to research in the social psychology lab, worked as a peer mentor, and shadowed genetic counselors in a variety of specialties over summers. Kristen volunteered as a math and literacy tutor with GiGi’s playhouse, and spent five years as a crisis intervention advocate with Common Ground Resource & Crisis Helpline. Following graduation, Kristen worked with patients as an Oncology Genetics Assistant at the Assarian Cancer Center. When she's not geeking out about genetics, you can find Kristen baking desserts to share, reading nonfiction, gardening, refinishing thrifted furniture, or spending time with her friends and animals.
