After graduating from Liverpool John Moores University in 2009 studying Biology, I entered the field of embryology. I completed my training and was awarded the Association of Clinical Embryology (ACE) certificate in 2016 and became registered with The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in 2020. My clinical responsibilities include the collection and preparation of gametes, insemination via conventional IVF and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), embryo grading, transfers, warms and cryopreservation. I have been an embryo biopsy practitioner for 6 years, which involves the delicate process of removing cells from the embryo for Pre-implantation Genetic Testing (PGT).
I have always had a keen interest in fertility and the reproductive system. Combining this with my passion for science has led me into embryology. With the help of modern science, we are now able to overcome a multitude of fertility obstacles. We can make patient’s dreams of starting a family come true, which may have otherwise, been impossible. I think becoming a parent is one of the most fulfilling experiences in life, and it is a privilege to work in a field that helps people achieve this.

Day to day I am responsible for performing the clinical procedures at Care Fertility Liverpool. I also oversee the maintenance of the laboratory and the movement of embryos into the unit, which houses over 350 cryopreserved embryos.I have recently joined the Care Fertility team and work across both the Liverpool and Chester sites. I enjoy working at Care Fertility because the team members from all disciplines have been very welcoming and I feel supported by my colleagues and management.
