Amanda Chassee, LMSW
After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from Hope College, Amanda went on to pursue her Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Michigan. Following more than 15 years in medical and mental health practice, Amanda was drawn to infertility counseling and joined our TFC family in 2018. During her time with us, she has seen how infertility affects people on a deeply personal level and can impact all aspects of their lives. She loves helping patients navigate what this experience means to them, and helps them create new ways to be the best version of themselves, considering the lived experience of infertility.

When not at the office, Amanda is an avid reader, loves backpacking and hiking trips to Canada, and traveling with her family.
