Associate Vice President, Medical Affairs

Christina Settler serves as the Associate Vice President of Medical Affairs at Baylor Genetics and has over 20 years of experience as a board-certified genetic counselor and medical affairs leader. Prior to joining Baylor Genetics, Christina managed and built a medical affairs division at two commercial laboratories: Sequenom, Inc., and Progenity, Inc. In addition, she has extensive experience in all areas of women’s health genetic testing. Notably, Christina helped introduce and implement cell-free DNA testing for aneuploidy to the OB/GYN community across the United States, creating access to more sensitive screening for all pregnant patients.

Christina received her bachelor’s degree in biology from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas.  After, she continued her education and received her master’s degree in human genetics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Upon graduation, Christina began her career as a genetic counselor spending 11 years counseling patients with high-risk pregnancies. She has always been passionate about putting patients first, whether providing clear information to a patient during a clinical visit, educating clinicians about offering appropriate testing to their patients, or shaping the tests laboratories offer.
