As a senior embryologist I have dedicated myself to the field of ART for 20+ years. I am currently the Technical Supervisor of the Ovation Fertility team in Newport Beach, CA (formerly the Southern California Institute for Reproductive Sciences). Since 2010, I have served as a tutor in two ASRM Post-Graduate Courses/Vitrification workshops (2010, 2014), completed a 2 year term on the AAB/CRB board as the Legislative Committee chair, and currently serving on the SRBT board as the Member-at-Large/Nomination Committee. As a long term member of ASRM and AAB, I regularly attend both annual scientific conferences. I have published and orally presented 7 abstracts as a first author at International & National Scientific conferences since 2008 (2012 CRB Research award winner), and have co-authored 4 peer-reviewed papers and 26 additional abstracts (several nominated for research award consideration). My research interests are focused on applied aspects of Embryology in an ART Lab aimed at validating and optimizing embryo culture and vitrification systems.
