Brief Bio

Hey team! My name is Maggie Ringler and I’m a genetic counseling graduate student at UNCG! I moved to North Carolina from Minneapolis, Minnesota where I attended the University of Minnesota – Go Gophers! While there, I studied genetics, cell biology, and development and minored in psychology. I also enjoyed being a part of the Dean’s Scholars community, a leadership program with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion. I had a strong interest in research and advocacy, so I started volunteering as an Aurora Center advocate, got involved in a maize genomics lab and later, due to the pandemic, a genetic counseling project! I first learned about genetic counseling in high school and knew immediately that it was the career I wanted to pursue because of the unique combination of communication skills and application of genetics. In my free time, I love attending sporting events (particularly football and hockey!) and watching comedy shows! Please feel free to reach out to me at with any questions about GC applications or the UNCG program!
