Meet Marni Giles.  Marni is an Associate Genetic Counsellor at the Familiar Cancer Centre at King Edward Hospital in Perth, Western Australia.  Marni’s patients have a strong family history of Cancer.  She assesses their personal risk, how to reduce their risk & then counsels them on managing it all.  An amazingly specialised & important job in our community.

At home Marni is Mum to 2 year old Owen & Ashley, 13.

Marni grew up in Melbourne.  Her career saw her then move to Brisbane & finally Perth.

As Marni boarded the plane to Perth six years ago, famously, Marni’s Mum told her, “don’t fall in love & never come back!”  Typically, that’s exactly what happened!  Meeting partner Nic, owner of  landscaping business Landscapes WA,  Marni is now happily ensconced in the leafy Northern suburbs of Perth, juggling a specialised career & daily family life.

Maintaining close links with her East coast family, Marni’s home is filled with cherished family photos & mementos.  The family travel consistently interstate to keep in touch with the growing broods across Australia. Picture
