My Story

Hi! I’m Debbie Moon. Welcome to Genetic Lifehacks.

When I first had my genetic data sequenced, I was both amazed at the research available in academic journals and frustrated by the difficult language and disconnected topics.

Genetic Lifehacks began as a way to share what I was learning about genetics with my family and friends. My goal has always been to freely share information so that everyone can benefit.

As the website grew in popularity, I decided that I needed to know more… both more about genetics and more about how the pieces of the biological systems fit together. Since my undergraduate degree was in engineering, I went back to school and received my Master’s degree in Biological Sciences from Clemson University.

Now a full-time endeavor, Genetic Lifehacks has reached over 2 million readers, equipping people to use their genetic data to optimize their health.
