Learn More About Lisa
In 1999, Lisa was part of the team that founded The American Infertility Association, a nationwide patient advocacy, support and educational non-profit organization. The association later changed its name to The American Fertility Association, making a conscious decision to emphasize the positive side of the discussion. It created many new programs and educational venues for men and women to become more educated and empowered and a whole new way of discussing infertility.
Her involvement in The American Fertility Association included starting a quarterly magazine that aimed to educate women about infertility, organizing patient conferences for nearly 1,000 people, major fundraising and serving as Assistant Executive Director. Twenty-five years later, she continues to encourage women to share their experiences and speak up about their fertility challenges.
Working with Illume Fertility as a dedicated Patient Advocate gives Lisa an opportunity to continue to educate patients, doctors and the general public about infertility and the impact and availability of responsible fertility treatment.
Lisa also leads many of Illume Fertility's ongoing fertility support groups, which are designed to help patients and fertility warriors navigate this often challenging journey.
