As a Support Coordinator for SAI, I work daily with Surrogates to assess their needs and provide support in any way needed. This could mean attending doctor’s appointments, visiting Surrogates at the hospital, attending Support Group meetings, or talking and emailing Surrogates to check on their wellbeing. Nurturing is part of who I am, and I found the perfect place at SAI that allows me to use my skills to their best advantage.
I am a proud military wife with an amazing hero of a husband and three wonderful children of my own (two girls and one boy). As a hometown San Diego girl, I enjoy being outdoors; going hiking, kayaking and snowboarding with my family is actually my favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon! As you can imagine, family is very important to me. I come from a large clan…I’m one of nine children! Having a big family means having loud family get-togethers; loving, arguing, playing and building those memorable moments. I recently completed my first surrogacy, and gave birth to boy/girl twins in May of 2018. Along with the birth of my own children, being a surrogate has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, and I consider it among my most important accomplishments.
The things I love about my job:
- I have always enjoyed listening to people’s stories and helping them through any problems they might have. Now I get to do this every day…and get paid to do it!
- This job is an opportunity to help other women achieve something I truly believe, in my heart, is a gift. To have the chance to help them build a family is something that I don’t consider work at all, but more like my passion.
I am child number six, out of nine, in my family. One of my brothers played professional ball for the San Diego Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs. I am really good at line dancing and I pick up new dance moves very easily. I have always enjoyed playing sports myself (volleyball, softball and soccer) and I also coach my daughter’s sports team.
