Charlotte Pemberton MSc

Information Officer (Family Support)

Hi I am Charlie. Having just completed a Masters in Genetic and Genomic Counselling I am delighted to join the brilliant team at Unique in the role of Information Officer where I can put my recently acquired skills into practice. In addition to my MSc in Genetic and Genomic Counselling, I have a BSc in Biology and I have worked as a listener for Samaritans for 7 years.

My role at Unique is to support families and professionals with rare chromosome and specific single gene disorders. I am here to provide information and answer queries and to match families on the basis of their rare chromosome disorder, symptoms or treatments.

In addition to working at Unique, I am mum to a 16-month old who was recently diagnosed as congenitally blind with a seemingly unique combination of physiological abnormalities.
