Surrogate Alternatives was formed in 1998 when I became inspired to share my own surrogacy experience with others. Two years prior, I spent all of my time and energy researching infertility and third party reproduction. I met with industry professionals to strategize and find ways to make Surrogate Alternatives successful. Built from the ground up when there were only a handful of agencies located in California, Surrogate Alternatives has become known and recognized worldwide as one of the leading surrogacy and egg donation agencies in the United States.

The goal I had in mind when choosing my career path was to implement the strong morals and values I grew up with and build something my employees and I could be proud to be apart of. Our agency provides a top-notch service while keeping costs down for our clients. Surrogate Alternatives has grown from a single person operation to a team of 10 experienced and dedicated employees.

Surrogacy and egg donation was a field of personal interest to me. I know first-hand, the pain of infertility, as a close family friend of mine was unable to become pregnant due to her late stage diabetes. It wasn’t fair that the joy of parenthood could be stolen from her so easily. It’s a human right to procreate and to know what it feels like to love someone so unconditionally and completely, I knew I had to do everything and anything I could to help others if I was able. I’ve personally been a surrogate twice and given birth to three babies.  I’ve also been a five time egg donor which has resulted in the birth of seven babies and it’s through these experiences that I continue to make the creation of families a priority.

I have spent over a decade and a half perfecting the complicated process of building families through surrogacy and egg donation with the knowledge and experience I have gained and shared with my staff. I will always make sure my team puts your interests and needs first. I am confident in our ability to make your experience enjoyable and as memorable as possible.

At Surrogate Alternatives, my employees are like family to me, I want them to feel like they are sharing in my success, because without them, I wouldn’t be able to live out my dream of helping others.
