Going back to college, she graduated with two additional degrees in 2017 and 2020 from Florida Atlantic University (FAU).

She is currently a PhD candidate in Integrative Biology at FAU studying sperm quality and potential ways to improve it in clinical settings. Charlene taught Life Science labs to undergraduate students at FAU for 3 years and is now the instructor of record for the course. Trained at Boca Fertility, Charlene is now a licensed Embryologist and Andrologist, who is always eager to learn new skills and is dedicated to giving patients the care and attention they deserve.

Patient Reviews

My husband and I can’t thank the staff and clinic enough for all the care, love and attention towards our fertility journey. Dr. Peress is very knowledgeable, honest and have good sense of humor, which made us to feel comfortable. The atmosphere is friendly and yet staff is very professional. I can’t thank enough nurse Jenny for always being on top of my appointments and for treating me with kindnesses. I highly recommend this clinic.

Patient Reviews

We were recommended to Dr. Peress and Boca Fertility from a very good friend and couldn’t be any happier. From the very first virtual consultation through graduation, we always felt supported and heard. The nurses were always caring, providing us with the needed smile or hug and always happy to answer all our crazy questions. It was ultimately a long, hard journey but we couldn’t have imagined it with anyone else. Boca Fertility has become family and because of them, we’re finally getting ready to start our own!

Patient Reviews

The staff at Boca Fertility are all incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and compassionate with their patients; I’m so thankful to have found them! I’ve always been able to contact someone and speak directly with a nurse regarding any concerns and they’ve genuinely gone above and beyond to make sure I’m reassured and well informed on everything regarding my care. They’re one of the few places I’ve been where I can say I’m completely confident in the care being provided. I would strongly recommend them to anyone seeking a fertility specialist.
