Jennifer Pecos, Cytogenetics Specialist

Jennifer works remotely for WiCell from her home in New Mexico as a Cytogenetics Technologist.  She performs cytogenetic analysis of stem cell cultures.  Jennifer graduated from New Mexico State University with a Bachelor of Science in microbiology and a minor in chemistry and holds her ASCP certification in cytogenetics. She began her career in Cytogenetics at Genzyme in Santa Fe, NM in 2006.  From Genzyme she moved to TriCore Reference Laboratories in Albuquerque working as a cytogenetics technologist at both labs.  She performed tissue culture, harvest and analysis of amniotic fluid, chorionic villi, products of conception, blood and bone marrow samples, and also processed and analyzed FISH samples. 

In her off-time Jennifer enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, their two children, and family...half-jokingly keeping an eye out for Bigfoot.  She also enjoys all things true crime.
