“I honestly can’t believe how lucky I am to do a job that literally changes lives… to be able to walk into the embryo transfer theatre and know that I may be about to help in the creation of a new life is a feeling like no other……there is no where I would rather be…"
Sam has been an integral part of the Care Manchester embryology team for the past 11 years, contributing heavily to the launch of timelapse culture as a clinical tool in the UK and its evolution into the Caremaps treatment option we see today.
Sam is passionate about the development of non-invasive embryo selection techniques and believes that further research and development into time-specific morphological changes of embryos will enable us to fully embrace non-disturbance, better mimicking nature and leading to greater success in IVF.
Sam started her embryology career in 2005 at IVF Hammersmith in London and on completion of her training in 2009, she moved back up to her roots in the north initially working at the Hewitt Centre in Liverpool, before then being welcomed into the Care group in 2011.
She has a first-class degree in Genetics and a Masters degree in Professional Science in addition to being a member of ARCS (Association of Reproductive and Clinical Scientists) and having registration with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council).
When she isn’t looking after embryos, you’ll find her spending quality time with her young family in the great outdoors or treating her mum to a night at the theatre!
