I am so pleased to be able to marry a passion for science
with a passion for family. As an Aspire embryologist, I get
to know patients on a personal level, help them feel
confident in our IVF process, and care for their eggs and
embryos with advanced technologies that increase their
chance for successful pregnancy.
