Sarah Simoni

New Patient Liaison (onboarding), General Admin and PA to Lynne

I was an executive assistant to C-Suite executives in investment banking and technology for 20 years in London, Frankfurt and Dubai before starting at LCRH with Lynne when it was just the two of us. In my new patient liaison capacity, I am often the first person a new patient will speak to, and I am passionate about listening carefully and providing a warm and friendly initial experience for them from their first point of contact.

I have had IVF treatment three times but don’t have children of my own, so I have a personal understanding of what it is to experience infertility. I have a degree in psychology and I live in beautiful rural Kent with my extended family – my partner, my parents, my sister and her three teenagers, a dog and some cats.

Nicola Mahoney

Specialist Fertility Nurse & Sonographer based at Beaconsfield Clinic

I qualified as a nurse in 1984, then as a midwife in 1989. I was very lucky to deliver my nephew and still see this as being the highlight of my career. I became a Fertility Nurse in 1997 and have never looked back. I love being a fertility nurse and literally see myself as being on the journey with my patients.

I have been married to Gary (he was my driving instructor) for almost 30 years and we have 4 cats. We love going on holidays and chilling out but also enjoy exploring a city on a long weekend.

I enjoy driving, walking and have a new interest in our garden since covid!
