Kami Wolfe Schneider, MS, CGC is a Senior Instructor for the University of Colorado working as a pediatric cancer genetic counselor in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital Colorado. A 2005 graduate of the University of Cincinnati's genetic counseling program, she worked as an adult cancer and prenatal genetic counselor in Memphis, TN for more than 4 years. She then joined the University of Colorado as a staff member in the Clinical Genetics and Metabolism Section in 2009 after which she initiated and developed Children's Hospital Colorado's first pediatric cancer genetic counseling clinic which began in March 2011. In 2013, Kami was hired as an Instructor faculty member in the Section of Hematology, Oncology, and Bone Marrow transplantation, and she was promoted to Senior Instructor in 2016. The clinic now has 3 full time genetic counselors covering multiple hematology, oncology, bone marrow transplant, and specialty programs. Kami is passionate about reducing health disparities, increasing diversity in the profession of genetic counseling, and advocating for genetic counselors. In 2021, Kami began her doctoral training in Leadership for Educational Equity in Higher Education in hopes of increasing the amount of research, teaching, and/or leadership in her role. In her policy and governance course, Kami elected to write her final paper on policies around faculty tenure and genetic counselors. She subsequently shared her experience learning about the subject in a Perspectives article published in 2022. She expects to obtain her EdD (doctor of education) degree in spring 2024.
