The Genesis family has many touching and compelling stories to tell, but Lori Williams, a registered nurse, nurse manager and in-charge of the Sperm Retrieval Program at our clinic, has a special and personal one to share. Her struggles with her husband’s cancer is one that parallels many of our patients.
Lori’s personal experiences and strength translates into her dedication to help patients at our clinic. We hope that you will find her path to Genesis an inspirational tale.
Hi! My name is Lori and I work as a Registered Nurse at the Genesis Fertility Centre. Prior to working at Genesis, I worked for more than ten years at Vancouver General Hospital – first as a vascular/general surgery nurse then as a critical care nurse in the Post Anesthetic Care Unit.
I love my job and I truly believe it has helped shape me into the person I am now. It is one of the few careers that give you intimate access to extraordinary stories of others’ personal lives. I have met World War II heroes, inventors, survivors of unimaginable circumstances as well as star-crossed lovers.
My career has also exposed me to the varying limits of human capacity and has taught me that regardless of age, race or status, no one is exempt from life’s curve balls.
