Acting Lab Manager
Aimee first graduated with an Honours degree in Biomedical Sciences, majoring in human reproduction and genetics, from the University of Otago (New Zealand) before getting her PhD from the University of Sydney’s Medical School. Her PhD was focused on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and the potential causes of it. She had spent a lot of time in IVF clinics collecting samples for her research and fell in love with the idea of helping people create their family.
Aimee started with a Virtus Health clinic, IVF Australia, in Sydney in 2016. Aimee spent the first 2 years of her career working solely on PGT and in that time managed to personally biopsy over 1500 embryos. She then began to integrate into the rest of the lab and learn everything else that and Embryologist does, but her passion will always be PGT.
In 2019, Aimee moved from Australia and took up a role in Sims IVF in Ireland in our Cork Clinic.
