She subsequently received a Master’s degree in Andrology/Embryology from the world renowned Jones Institute in Norfolk, VA. She has experience from a variety of laboratories, including an environmental testing lab in Anchorage, Alaska, as well as a research laboratory studying antigens that cause cancer using PCR in conjunction with DNA microchip arrays here in Seattle.

“I greatly enjoy the patient interaction that comes with the territory here at Overlake Reproductive Health. When we meet individual patients that we are attempting to help, there is an added dimension that does not necessarily come with most research-directed laboratories. We constantly are seeing the human side of our work, which allows us to share more fully in the joys and successes of the clinicians’ daily practice.”
