As Founder and CEO of Manhattan Fertility Services, a full-service fertility center with in-house IVF lab, Cynthia built and operated the practice while developing a pioneering patient experience and new, viable revenue streams. Her creation of a reference andrology lab, management corporation, and associated medical practice played a critical role in the center’s growth and eventual sale.
She applied this same holistic expertise as co-Founder of Kindbody — a revolutionary reproductive firm that combines best-in-class technology, clinical excellence, and accessible pricing to connect the full patient experience on one intuitive platform. And as Founder and CEO of Cellavita, an Assisted Reproductive Technology consulting service established in 2004, Cynthia offered a variety of advisory and laboratory services to a wide range of corporate clients and domestic and international clinical IVF programs.
Cynthia is a member of multiple medical organizations, including the American Board of Bioanalysis, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and American College of Embryology. She she has made dozens of published contributions to leading scientific journals, such as Fertility & Sterility, Human Reproduction, and Science. Her work has also been featured in presentations at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology.
