Laura has been working in the third-party fertility field since 2008 and has a unique insight into the world of family-building. A married mother with two children of her own, Laura was passionate about sharing the amazing gift of being a parent with others, prompting her to become an egg donor and then a gestational carrier. Laura found her passion and worked for several years as case manager for a surrogacy agency before helping create and launch West Coast Egg Donation in 2014. As the Director, Laura is the main person of contact for WCED from the initial screening and application, pairing egg donor and intended parents, through the egg retrieval, providing support along the entire process to both egg donors and intended parents. Laura thrives in her role and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with egg donors and intended parents daily.
Laura’s passion to help people extends beyond her work with WCED - she’s worked as a job coach for high school students with disabilities and has worked for many years with HIV+ ex-offenders helping them reintegrate back into society and sourcing housing, medical and support services.
Laura treasures the new and rewarding experiences she has gained with each egg donor match, and loves being a part of building families both personally and for others working with WCED.
Born and raised in Long Beach, CA, Laura graduated from CSU Fullerton with a BA in Psychology.
