Kerry Johnson is a Senior Genetic Counselor with the Northwell Cancer Genetics Program. Kerry works with patients to develop an individualized management plan to address their specific concerns, whether they have just been diagnosed with a BRCA mutation or have known about their mutation for a while and would like an update on our current knowledge surrounding BRCA. Kerry earned her Master’s degree in Genetic Counseling at the Icahn
School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and her undergraduate degree in Human Biology at the University of Virginia. Kerry also serves as the educational coordinator for the Cancer Genetics team and helps current genetic counseling graduate students further their knowledge and skills through clinical rotations and mentorship. As genetic counselors, we work with breast surgeons, medical oncologists, plastic surgeons, gynecologic oncologists, reproductive endocrinologists, Cancer Geneticist, and other important medical team members to provide comprehensive care for patients who have a BRCA mutation or other hereditary cancer syndromes. Our team is here to provide evaluation, counseling, testing and support- we’ll be with you throughout the process and beyond.
