Licensed, Certified Genetic Counselor
Each person has a unique journey which leads us to meet one another in clinic. My goal as a genetic counselor specializing in reproductive medicine is to ensure each patient's story is heard. Through assessing personal and family histories and reviewing all available genetic screening and testing options, we ensure our patients can make the best decision toward building their family, whichever their decision may be.
Kendra Eaves, MS joined the Medical College staff in May 2014. Her Master of Science degree in Medical and Molecular Genetics was obtained at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana. She became a Board Certified Genetic Counselor through the American Board of Genetic Counseling in 2015. Starting in 2019 Kendra transitioned to manger of our adult genetic counseling program. In this position she strives to expand services and reduce barriers to ensure exceptional patient care.
As a reproductive medicine genetic counselor, her main focuses are on individualizing each patient’s plan concerning current screening and/or genetic testing while taking their family and personal histories, as well as personal goals into consideration. Addressing patient and familial risks and their available options serves as a unique opportunity to impact patient wellness and disease prevention. Kendra’s goal is to support and serve as a resource for patients while guiding them through the process.
In her spare time, Kendra enjoys spending time with family and friends. She looks for opportunities to be outdoors whenever possible, and is fond of summertime lake activities. Traveling and animals are two of Kendra’s passions.
