Tell Us About Yourself.
I would tend to say that I am more of a private person; I enjoy spending time alone when not engaged in work or with family. I am a vegetarian, Cubs fan and all around animal lover.
What Brought you to Family Source Consultants?
In 2005, a very good friend of mine and I knew that our strong passion for assisting others to become parents as well via Surrogacy could expand through developing an agency here in Chicago. With Illinois having some of the most Surrogacy friendly laws in the U.S., we utilized our knowledge and passion within the industry and opened our agency [FSC] in January of 2007.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
WOW, this is a tough one as I cannot name just ONE! Of course, the end result and main purpose of what we all do here at the agency; to know that we have helped another couple or person meet their little miracle or miracles that they have dreamed of.
Another rewarding aspect of my job is seeing the amazing work that my staff does on a daily basis; through their dedication, hard work and compassion for our Intended Parents, Surrogates and Donors, they really make me proud!
Frequently Asked Question from an Intended Parent?
One of the most common questions that I receive is related to the costs involved and what we anticipate the total financial piece to be.
What are you interests outside of work at FSC?
I enjoy mostly spending time with my family, which consists of my husband, (John) four amazing children, 3 sons (Chris, Tj & Trey) and daughter (Alyssa) and my ADORABLE grandson, Sonny. I also enjoy diving into business articles and any good read on self and life improvement.
