Valerie H. LaCroix, MSc, LGC
Genetic Counseling, Manager
What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
The connections I have made with my patients and their families is both humbling and powerful. My job involves providing families with information that can sometimes lead them to make very difficult decisions. Even though some families have had to make life-changing decisions, I have still received various forms of appreciation for the work I have done. Knowing that I was able to help families through difficult times is why I do what I do.
What about your job inspires you?
My inspiration comes from the people I work with and those who I help.
What do you like best about your department?
My department works as a team. Through the years, I have always felt respected and supported for the work that I do.
