Dr. Finkelstein was born and raised in New York. She attended Bryn Mawr College and Albany Medical College. After completing her training in Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut, she spent time in Omaha, NE with the Public Health Service. Dr. Finkelstein moved to Baltimore to pursue further training in Pediatric Genetics at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. After completing her Genetics fellowship, Dr. Finkelstein joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins. Following the birth of her third child, Dr. Finkelstein left Johns Hopkins to spend some time being a full-time mom. She then joined our practice and continued to supervise residents and genetics fellows at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Finkelstein and her husband, Alan, have three beautiful adult children. She has been a board member of the Towson YMCA (Chair of the Childcare Committee) and has volunteered at the Maryland Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. She served as a mentor in the Y’s Building Futures Program and as a “big sister” in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program.
