Heather Rocha, MS, LGC

I am a board-certified and licensed Genetic Counselor with specialized interest in Hereditary Cancer syndromes. I earned my Bachelor’s from Kutztown University in 2010 and Master’s in Genetic Counseling in 2014. At Geisinger, I found the perfect position to allow me to help people in my community through clinical work, but also make a bigger impact in our field through research.
Currently, as a Cancer Genetic Counselor, I work in several clinics: Adult Cancer Genetics, Pediatric Cancer Genetics, our High-Risk Breast program, and Geisinger’s multi-disciplinary Inherited Risk GI Clinic for patients with Lynch syndrome. In addition, I provide genetic counseling to patients identified through Geisinger’s MyCode Community Health Initiative and contribute regularly to research abstracts, papers, and presentations.
