Program Director

Natalie King

Program Director Natalie King is passionate about making pregnancy affordable and successful for those seeking to start a family with donor eggs. Natalie’s career in reproductive health began with her own fertility treatment as a patient who needed preimplantation genetic testing (PGT).  She became so intrigued by the field of fertility that she left her training in emergency medicine and went back to school to become an embryologist. Building the Atlantic Shared Beginnings program is a dream come true for her.  Learn more about Natalie.

Dr. David Walmer

Dr. Walmer’s professional goal is to build a patient-centered practice through relationships, empowering patients to make informed decisions regarding their individual fertility barriers and treatments. As a fertility doctor, he has said of reproductive medicine practice, “What we do is bigger than who we are. We start a journey that changes lives. Learn more about Dr. Walmer.

Dr. Susannah Copland

Dr. Copland’s professional goal is to provide exceptional, personalized and evidenced-based care to patients working to expand their families. Tailoring her advice to each patient’s unique circumstances, Dr. Copland defines success as a fertility doctor as caring for her patients the same way that she cares for her own family. Learn more about Dr. Copland.

Embryologist

Julia Tucker

Julia completed her Master’s in Reproductive Physiology at North Carolina State University and while there, she had the opportunity to meet an embryologist. This inspired her career path. She’s been working as an embryologist for over six years. When she isn’t working in the lab, Julia is busy on her horse farm in Chapel Hill. She enjoys spending time with her family and riding her horses.

Andrologist

Alease Daniel

Alease came to Atlantic as an intern from North Carolina State University. Once she had her degrees in Genetics and Biotechnology in hand, she joined our staff as an andrologist! While in college she was Genetics Club President and a student teacher. The skills she gained apply to her patient work: she carefully and clearly explains the process and procedures, and makes sure that the patient understands what their journey will entail. Alease grew up in Creedmoor, NC. She has a rescue dog, Pippa. In her free time she likes to travel, read, work-out and visit new restaurants downtown!

IVF Nurse Coordinator and 3rd Party Coordinator

Meghan Harris

Meghan received her nursing degree from Duke University. Her career started in labor and delivery, then on to reproductive endocrinology. She has worked in fertility centers in Memphis, Atlanta and now, Raleigh, after her husband’s residency brought them, happily, back to Durham. Meghan loves getting to know her patients and being part of their journey to become parents. Meghan is a team player–caring, patient and happy. Meghan enjoys her time with her husband and young daughters! She loves music, the outdoors and exploring the town.

RN - Third Party Coordinator

Ebony Silver

Ebony is our third party coordinator. She came to Atlantic Shared Beginnings with her passion for women’s health and third-party reproduction, after a decade in orthopedic surgery recovery. She loves helping people realize their dreams of having a family. A mother of five, Ebony finds great joy in children. Ebony moved here from Indiana to be close to her aging father. She loves spending time with her family, especially watching movies and listening to live music together.
