Annie Miller

clinical lead

Annie Miller started with RMI in 2013 as a sonographer. From there she quickly advanced to IVF cycle coordinator. She was passionate about helping people develop families and decided to take on the role of helping patients coordinate egg donor and surrogacy treatment cycles, and assisting our international patients. Being a mother, combined with her expertise in reproductive medicine, and her ability to truly understand and connect patients’ needs, Annie was given the opportunity and accepted the position as Clinical Nurse Manager. With this role, she can work closely with both staff and patients.

“Being in this environment really opened up my eyes to the struggle that patients endure. I developed a passion for helping people reach their goal of starting or continuing a family. Nothing makes me happier than to see a patient walk back through the door after a successful pregnancy.” – Annie Miller
