Meet Amy Albertson, Clinical Coordinator at Sher Fertility St. Louis
Amy Albertson is the Clinical Coordinator for Sher Fertility St. Louis‘s clinic. She took some time from her busy schedule helping Dr. Molina Dayal and Dr. Barry Witten, the office staff, and patients to answer a few questions about how she got started in her career, and what she enjoys about her work:
I became a clinical coordinator at Sher Fertility because … I feel passionate about women facing infertility and helping them through the process of IVF. I speak about my role at SIRM frequently and hope to continually bring awareness and compassion to those experiencing difficulty growing their family.
The hardest part of my job is … Calling with difficult news. Every woman is different with how they want to deal with negative results and it can be hard to know how best to support them.
The most rewarding aspect of my job is … Hearing the joy in a woman’s voice when they get the call that they are pregnant! I love baby bump and baby pictures and visits!
The question I get asked the most is … What can I do to have a successful cycle?
The one thing I wish our patients understood better is … Our team wants you to grow your family as much as you do. We are behind you and sweat out “beta days” too!
One little-know-fact about me is … My husband pushed me into nursing after he completed nursing school. He is a nurse manager in an emergency room, so we have very different work days! I couldn’t be happier being a nurse now, but I needed some convincing at the time.
