Breann Reinsch was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ as the middle child of four, with an older brother and younger twin sisters. Reinsch was drawn to the field of genetic counseling because it would enable her to help people in need. This desire was instilled in her by her father, a dentist. He was an inspiration, always helping his patients whenever he could and in any way possible, a trait she wants to bring to her own practice.
Reinsch graduated in May of 2020 as part of KGI’s inaugural Master of Science in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling (MSGC) class, and shortly after joined KGI’s faculty as Assistant Professor of Genetics. As part of her position, she has been tasked with creating a genetic counseling program at Pomona Valley Hospital, where she initially has been working with cancer patients. The cancer program is up and running just six weeks after being hired and hopes to soon expand the program by offering genetic counseling to other specialties including cardiology, prenatal, and pediatric.
At KGI, Reinsch will be helping teach the ABGC Board Review, as well as serve as a mentor to the newest class of genetic counseling students. Aside from being a science girl, Reinsch began dancing at three years old, and has never stopped. It is her other great life passion that she still enjoys in her spare time.
