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.
