Our Team

Surrogate Steps is a full-service surrogacy agency with a team consisting of surrogate and intended parent intake coordinators and surrogate and intended parent journey coordinators led by a reproductive attorney. What makes the Surrogate Steps team unique is how intimately involved every person has been in IVF and Surrogacy. Each team member has grown their own family through IVF or has been a gestational carrier on multiple occasions. Learn more about each member of our team below.
