Provider Spotlight – Emily Opdycke, ARNP
Emily Opdycke, ARNP has been a part of Brown Fertility since 2012. She came to the clinic with over a decade of nurse practitioner experience in women’s health. She received her nursing degree from the University of North Florida in 2003, where she graduated in the top 10% of her class. Emily then earned a Master’s degree from the University of Cincinnati. She is currently a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health and Sigma Theta Tau (Lhambda Rho Chapter). Emily also holds certifications in the National Certification Corporation, ACLS, and basic life support.
Some of Emily’s specialties include performing history and physicals for assessing, diagnosing and implementing a plan of care for couples experiencing infertility. She manages infertility treatments such as timed intercourse, insemination and IVF cycles. Emily spearheads Brown Fertility’s successful IUI and timed intercourse program; this program is modeled after Brown Fertility’s IVF program and has a more conservative approach. The purpose of the intrauterine insemination is to increase the woman’s ability to become pregnant by washing the sperm to enhance its motility and by mechanically placing the sperm closer to the egg. It has a less invasive approach by using a small flexible catheter. Emily works collaboratively with the physicians, the embryologist, andrologist, nurses and medical assistants to provide adequate care for patients. Her expertise shows through her professionalism while remaining personable and respectable.
Emily is a mother to three children and has been married to her husband for thirteen years. She enjoys spending time with her family, watching football, traveling and art. She also likes to spend time at the beach and plays volleyball in a recreational league.
