Certified Genetic Counsellor in Malaysia 

Speaker/Author/Trainer/Consultant for Genetic Counselling 

Founder of Genetic Counselling Asia (GCA) 

Ms Juliana Lee is the first genetic counsellor in Malaysia to be certified by Human Genetics Society of Australasia (HGSA). She is also a licensed counsellor with the Malaysian Board of Counsellors.

Ms Lee began practice in 2004 at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre. After 10 years serving in public health, she joined the private industry in 2014 as a genetic counsellor in a molecular diagnostics company offering the latest genetic tests in Southeast Asia. This role gave rise to opportunities for her to provide genetic counselling services across Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Vietnam. Apart from conducting genetic counselling sessions, she consults organizations that require training and genetic counselling support services. The experience gathered over the years has led her to start private practice in 2015 with the set-up of Genetic Counselling Asia (GCA).

Throughout her career, she has actively contributed in promoting the importance of genetic counselling, the role of genetic counsellors and to train more genetic counsellors in Malaysia. She is active in professional societies holding positions as the Secretary of Genetic Counselling Society Malaysia (GCSM) and President of the Professional Society of Genetic Counsellors in Asia (PSGCA).
