Afton Vechery is the CEO and Co-founder of Modern Fertility, the women's health company making personalized fertility information more accessible to women everywhere. Modern Fertility offers the first comprehensive hormone test you can take at home to check in on fertility hormones, providing women with a proactive and informed way to learn about their reproductive health. Under Afton's leadership, Modern Fertility has built a new approach to fertility education—one that’s grounded in clinical rigor, the latest research, community support, and neutral, personalized information.
To further its goal, Modern Fertility has published multiple clinical studies that advance fertility science and help women better understand fertility. Modern Fertility’s first study demonstrated that its home test and a traditional venous blood draw are concordant. This study was published in the Green Journal, reviewed in the New England Journal of Medicine, and selected for a prize paper presentation at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in 2018. Additional Modern Fertility research dives into the cultural elements of fertility, including studies on common fertility knowledge gaps, the desire for new information and support channels, as well as LGBTQ+ fertility and family planning. All research has been carried out in close collaboration with Modern Fertility’s Medical Advisory Board.
Modern Fertility is the fourth health company that Afton has had a hand in launching. Before Modern Fertility, Afton worked in healthcare private equity, leading diligence into IVF clinics and laboratories, before leading strategic operations at various healthtech startups. Afton was most recently a product leader at 23andMe, overseeing the consumer tools division. Afton was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list as well as Inc Magazine's 30 Under 30 list, and Modern Fertility was named Fast Company's most innovative healthcare company in the world in 2019 and one of CNBC's most promising startups to watch in 2019.
