Jennifer Brown, M.D.
Jennifer Keller Brown joined the NRM family in January of 2015.
Dr. Brown grew up in the Midwest (Shawnee Mission, Kansas) but spent much of her adult life in Denver, Colorado, where she enjoyed running triathlons while attending medical school at the University of Colorado and residency at St Joseph’s Hospital in Denver, CO. Like many other women in our culture today, she was single in her 30’s and focused on her training and her career, yet knew that her ovaries may not cooperate with a “holding pattern.” While performing research in oocyte vitrification as a 34-year old, Ob/Gyn resident, Dr. Brown realized she could invest in her own future fertility, and have some sense of reproductive security by undergoing fertility preservation—freezing her eggs for potential future use. Little did she know that after moving to Vermont (to complete her fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility) with just one dog, she would leave 3 years later with a husband, a baby boy, and another dog! Dr. Brown then worked at the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine, in Denver, CO from 2012-2014. She greatly expanded her infertility practice and learned a tremendous amount by treating wonderful patients from all over the world. Dr. Brown is now happy to be practicing in Vermont at NRM, and she is an active member of the New England Fertility Society executive committee, for which she currently sits as President-elect. Dr Brown was elected by her peers to the position of President of NEFS in 2019. She spent 2014-2018 representing Vermont on the NEFS Executive Committee as the member-at-large.
The Brown family has grown—they now have a 5 year old boy and 4 year old twins, plus two dogs. With all that crew, they are thrilled to be back in Vermont, to embrace the fabulous community that they hope will help raise their family. The Browns love to ski, hike, laugh, and eat maple syrup. Dr. Brown’s spouse, Roger, is the son of Marilyn Cochran Brown, from the family of the “Skiing Cochrans.” He works hard (when he is not skiing or coaching t-ball) making Slopeside Syrup and Untapped.
With her personal history, Dr. Brown truly believes that anything can happen. She specializes in reproductive surgery, fertility preservation, and IVF with pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, and PCOS. Dr. Brown loves working with patients to help them understand and work toward their family planning goals—and she reminds patients that you never know exactly how your journey will unfold. It may end up totally different than you ever imagined.
