CO-OWNER & FOUNDER
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Liz Ellwood founded Fertility Match after a decade of charitable work and personal hardship in fertility. At the age of 24, Liz was diagnosed with cervical cancer, and was told that by receiving the required treatment to survive, she would never have kids again. The best specialists in the country were not able to provide her with any information on how to preserve her eggs or if that was even possible in advance of her treatment.

DIRECTOR OF CLIENT CARE
I was 20 years old when I first saw on the news that Louise Brown, had been born into the world as the first IVF baby ever. At the time I was a nursing student and I was fascinated with the new technology of IVF, but never thought that I would have to use that same technology to conceive my son 15 years later. After that experience, I was filled with a passion to help others that had to build their family using Assisted Reproductive Technologies. I have felt so privileged to be a part of other’s lives on such a personal level and to help them build their families as I know the joy that you experience after the intense journey of infertility.
