Our Fertility Doctors
The three physicians at Northeastern Reproductive Medicine look forward to getting to know you. We started NRM because we wanted to create a comfortable, confidential and friendly setting with convenient access to affordable fertility care. Our Vermont NRM team of doctors, nurses, and embryologists specializes in all forms of Assisted Reproductive Technology and reproductive surgery.

Jennifer Keller Brown M.D., M.B.A, FACOG
Dr. Brown is a Board-Certified REI physician who joined the NRM family in January of 2015. Dr. Brown attended medical school at the University of Colorado and OB/GYN residency at St Joseph’s Hospital in Denver, CO. 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. Dr Brown was also elected by her peers in 2018 to represent independent practitioners in Vermont as an executive board member of Health First. Health First leads the medical community to provide Vermonters community-based, accessible, effective, and personalized medical care.
