Elizabeth Torres, LVN - Team Lead, IVF Coordinator
I attained my Medical Assistant certificate in 2002, worked for a few years, then decided to return to school and became licensed as a vocational nurse in 2007. Since 2012, I have worked as an infertility nurse and find it rewarding to help my patients achieve pregnancy and guide them through their fertility journey. It is a tough road to travel alone and having nurses who they can depend on I feel makes all the difference. On a personal note, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and three children.

There are very happy times as well as very sad times. Being a part of the greatest gift in life is rewarding. I love the updates our families give us throughout the pregnancy and beyond. The pictures of smiling babies and parents is truly amazing. I am thankful that I chose this career path when deciding which specialty to pursue in the medical field.
