Natalie Burke, PhD, ALS (AAB), Embryologist

I became interested in reproductive biology at East Tennessee State University where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology in 2009.  I received my PhD in Biomedical Science with a concentration in Biochemistry from Quillen College of Medicine in 2013. 

While finishing my training in embryology, my work in the medical genetics laboratory led me to do my dissertation research on the genetics of endometriosis. I have been privileged to train under many leaders in the field and am dedicated to maintaining the highest standards to ensure optimal results.

Lacie Barrett, RMA, IVF Coordinator

I graduated from Ross Medical Education in 2015 where I became a Registered Medical Assistant. I have been working for Quillen Fertility since 2016.  I knew that I wanted to pursue a career that would be meaningful and allow me to make a difference.  In the past I have focused on mission work both locally and internationally, concentrating on women’s and children’s outreach. My faith is very important to me and I attribute that to giving me a heart of compassion. It is my privilege to serve you.  I will walk with you through this fertility journey and we will rejoice together in your success!

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also!”
