As the Lab Director at Twig Fertility, Christine brings to the team a diverse and multi-faceted background in fertility and reproductive biology. It is through her passion for evidence-based research and overall exposure to multiple parts of the patient journey, that Christine has meticulously designed our laboratory which incorporates best practices from leading clinics across North America, and intertwines them into workflows that take a holistic view of the entire patient experience.

Her reproductive journey started with a Master’s degree from McGill University where she studied the key factors of embryo implantation. Following her thesis work, Christine entered into the world of fertility as a clinical embryologist and over the course of her career has been part of the teams in three leading fertility clinics in Canada.

Building upon her experiences in embryology, Christine then joined Igenomix, a leading genetic testing service provider specialized in fertility and reproductive health. At Igenomix, Christine set up two laboratory sites and was responsible for overseeing Canadian operations, as well as advising physicians across the US and Canada on genetic services, including endometrial receptivity and microbiome testing.

Christine is a member of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS), the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC).

A mother to two young kids and a dog, Zoe, Christine is also a certified yoga instructor and an avid backpacking camper. She is a PADI certified SCUBA diver and has spent time diving and studying blacktip and ragged tooth sharks, supporting research in Aliwal Shoal, South Africa.
