Helping people use and interpret DNA results is my specialty.
I offer DNA consultations to guide and coach clients to explore, interpret and apply their DNA results to their own unique family situations. I also offer customised genetic genealogy services, specialising in the identification of close biological relatives such as unknown parents and grandparents. My clients include adoptees, donor conceived individuals, foundlings, child migrants, war babies, people with unknown parentage for any reason, and DNA testers whose results reveal misattributed parentage.
I started my career working with big business data and now I work with DNA data and family trees to solve complex genealogical relationship puzzles.
After beginning genealogical research and education in 1997, I started using DNA as a research tool in 2011 and quickly recognised its power and its potential impact on family relationships in genealogy and the wider community.
I established one of Australia's first DNA interest groups and a Drop-in DNA Clinic, and I created and lead the popular Facebook group Using DNA for Genealogy - Australia & NZ. I regularly speak on genetic genealogy topics. I toured with DNA Down Under in 2019, and presented at Family History Down Under 2021.
