Mackenzie Mosera

Genetic Counselor, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Mackenzie Mosera has been a Division of Genetics and Genomic Medicine at Vanderbilt member for over four years. In that time, she has become known as a talented clinician, educator, and leader. Before joining the division, she completed her Master of Arts in Teaching at The College of New Jersey in the Spring of 2016 while teaching at the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. She then continued her studies at the University of Michigan, enrolled in a dual degree program, and completed her Master of Science in Genetic Counseling and Master of Public Health in Health Behavior and Health Education in 2019. During that time, she also completed a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) fellowship through the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute. Since joining the team, she has worked in clinical care in the general genetics outpatient setting, Cleft & Craniofacial multidisciplinary clinic and inpatient services while also holding a faculty appointment in the Master of Genetic Counselling Program and VUMC Pathology Division where she leads a Genetic Test Utilization Management Project.

Throughout her time at Vanderbilt she has developed a passion for addressing gaps in care and services, particularly as it relates to caring for patients in the inpatient setting. Over the past few years she has led efforts to improve genetic counseling services in this setting at Vanderbilt, advocating fiercely for an inpatient genetic counselor as well as access to rapid genome sequencing for critically ill neonates and pediatric patients. Her efforts have been recognized by the TN Genetic Counseling Association as she was awarded the 2023 Excellence in Advocacy Award. In addition, she has co-lead a multidisciplinary team in the development of a standardized protocol for increased access to clinical genetics services in the setting of perinatal demise.
