Ema J. Locker
Ema J. LockerUK Patient Manager
Working in the fertility environment for over 18 years has helped Ema to develop an insightful understanding of both the journey for the patient and the minefield of medical information needed to help people achieve a dream.

Support and knowledge is key. She feels extremely privileged to have worked with patients in the UK, and to also travel abroad with them as part of their fertility patient pathway (IVF & DE IVF). She has benefited by working with highly experienced Professors, Consultants, Mind/Body specialists, and nurses who have both trained and mentored her, thus enabling her to have a unique and varied understanding (medically and emotionally) and experiences (both professionally and personally) of a fertility journey.

Ema’s professional background has mainly been in managerial customer and business development for over 20 years. Previous roles included being responsible for developing and maintaining both UK and International treatment options, managing teams that offer the highest standard of customer care and interaction. She loves her job finding it very rewarding and it provides a wealth of opportunities, training, business and personal development, all with the ultimate aim to create the best service possible.
With PreGen, she looks forward to supporting you and helping your to make dreams come true.
