Vicki Butler, R.N.
While I’m often referred to as wife, mom, Nana and friend, I am Vicki Butler, a compassionate nurse with a deep love for the field of fertility who relies on faith for guidance. I began my career as a medical surgical nurse, then through a personal journey with a family member, I found my true calling to help those with infertility. So, here I am doing something that I hold near to my heart. I am a nurse, but not just any nurse. I hope to be your nurse: To coach, listen, provide a shoulder to cry on and help you navigate the intricacies of your own personal fertility journey.
Brittany Linton, R.N.
I completed my nursing degree at the College of the Mainland in Texas and am currently studying to be a nurse practitioner. I’m originally from Brandon, MS, but now live in Pelahatchie, MS, with my husband, Justin, and my daughter Claire. I view our patients as family and care deeply for those struggling with infertility. My goal is to educate patients during each step of the journey so they can have the most effective treatment possible.
Lisa Dorman, Lab Director
My career started with an associate’s degree as a Medical Laboratory Technician and I quickly realized that I loved working in the laboratory. I continued my career by achieving a bachelor’s degree in medical technology, followed by a master’s and then Ph.D. in clinical health sciences, and I am now certified as a MLS(ASCP), TS(ABB), HCLD(ABB). I am a “hands-on” laboratory director in embryology and andrology and very focused on patient quality and outcomes. Though native to Arkansas, Mississippi is now my home. I left Mississippi for Colorado for five years to advance my skills and knowledge in embryology. Colorado is a great place to live, but my husband and I decided to move home to Mississippi to be near our friends and family. I hope to help you on your journey!
Mandy Nichols, Andrologist
I received my Bachelor of Science in medical technology from Mississippi State University in 2003, and later graduated with a Master of Science in clinical health science from the University of Mississippi Medical Center in 2008. Although my two degrees came from rivaling schools, I was born and raised a Bulldog and will forever bleed maroon and white (GO DAWGS)! My husband and I both grew up in Madison, and we loved it here so much that we decided to make it our home to raise our four boys here, too.
Knowing how important my family is to me, I also know the struggle that some people go through to have families of their own. I was introduced to embryology and fell in love with the IVF laboratory early in my career as a medical laboratory scientist. But then after working 12 years in clinical microbiology (my other love), I was presented with the opportunity to return to a career in embryology, and I jumped at the opportunity – I knew that’s what I was being called to do. I feel blessed to work with such an amazing team doing such extraordinary and rewarding work, and I’m so excited to be back in the field of reproductive medicine, helping patients grow their families as a junior embryologist at Positive Steps Fertility.
Melissa Harris, Practice Manager
I’ve been caring for patients medically since 2003 and love the relationships that I’ve built over that time. I’ve recently transitioned to an administrative role, however I’m still enthusiastic about creating great results. I’m originally from Greenville but live in Brandon with my husband, Steven. We love animals and the outdoors. I’m so excited to be a part of Positive Steps Fertility. The possibilities are endless!
Tracy Boone, Patient Experience Director
I am a Madison native and thrilled to be working in my hometown. I have been in the healthcare field for over 25 years and am passionate about helping people. I am here to welcome you to our family—over the phone and as you arrive at our clinic.
Some of my favorite things to do are photography and shopping, but what my husband, Phillip, and I enjoy most is spending time with our family, which is why I can understand how much others want to have their own. My family is my heart and each and every one of them means the world to me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you start your own piece of happiness as you begin your journey with us here at Positive Steps Fertility.
