Dr. Brown is a Board-Certified REI physician who joined the NRM family in January of 2015.

During her residency, Dr. Brown co-authored research performed at the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine (CCRM) in the areas of egg and embryo vitrification. While performing this research, Dr. Brown realized she could invest in her own future fertility, and have some sense of reproductive security by freezing her own eggs for potential future use. Today she works to educate the community about the option of Fertility Preservation for reproductive-age patients diagnosed with cancer and preparing for chemotherapy, or for women delaying conception for personal or social reasons. Dr. Brown completed her fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Fletcher Allen Health Care, where she performed research in PCOS, which was published and presented at national meetings. She then moved with her family to Denver, Colorado, where she worked at CCRM from 2012-2014, expanding her infertility practice and learning a tremendous amount by treating complex patients from all over the world. Dr. Brown specializes in reproductive surgery, Fertility Preservation, PCOS, and IVF with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Dr. Brown was elected by reproductive endocrinologists across New England to be the President of the New England Fertility Society in 2019; she currently sits as the president-elect.

TARNELLI & HUGHES PLLC.
With decades of experience in adoption and assisted fertility law, Kurt M. Hughes and Michelle A. Tarnelli are passionate about helping their clients achieve legal security as they build their families. As Fellows of the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys, they have demonstrated their in-depth knowledge of this unique aspect of family law.
They have drafted hundreds of contracts involving gestational surrogacy, and gamete (ovum or sperm) and embryo donation arrangements.
They also prepare petitions for pre-birth parentage orders (PBO) for their clients under Vermont’s Parentage Act, which Kurt M. Hughes helped to write. These parentage orders are also a great option for same-sex couples using assisted fertility, rather than going through the more complex second-parent adoption process.
