Smadar Moore-Puel | Operations & Patient Services Manager
I started to work at CentraL IVF from day one and took part in the company's set up and formation. It was my first new job after a long maternity leave so it was nice to try and help others become parents. My mission was to care more than the ordinary! My vision is to continue to develop and deliver personal and exceptional service and experiences for our recipients and help them to achieve their dream. The best part of my work is to see pregnancies and live birth updates – it's worth everything. I am here to help and support you on your journey.
Amy Morris | Donor Program Coordinator
Since joining CentraLIVF in January 2021, I have had the privilege of helping hopeful parents achieve their dream . As the Donor Program Coordinator, it is my responsibility to not only walk them through the process but be readily available whenever a question or concern arises. For many people, this journey has been tough, but I am here to help every step of the way because I understand how important this moment is for them.
Yael Merkin – Evans | Operation Administrator
I have worked in customer service and administration for many years, but when I joined CentraLIVF in October 2021, I found a role that was far more rewarding and fulfilling. Being part of a great team that assists patients through their fertility journey and helps them achieve their dreams is an incredible feeling.
Maria Kravchenko | Donors Coordinators Manager

Yuliia Khonka | Senior Donors Coordinator
It has always been important to me that the values of the company I work for coincide with my personal values. That's why I started working at CentraLIVF while studying for my Master's degree in personnel management. My main mission in the company is to help people who needs the help by helping the donors who wants to help other.
Milena Nepomiashcha | Assistant donors coordinator
When I was a student, I often wondered what sort of job would really make me happy. I would try out various odd jobs, but nothing really seemed to fit. Then, one day, I found myself at CentraLIVF. Something about the place just clicked with me. Maybe it was the feeling that I was part of something larger than myself, or the knowledge that my work here could genuinely make a difference in people's lives.
