Patient Testimonial
Having a team that’s with you the whole way really boosts your confidence, makes you feel safe, makes you feel like you can ask questions… It was wonderful, it honestly made me feel kind of treasured in a way.

My mother struggled with fertility and had my wonderful brother with fertility treatments and I would love to give another family the chance to either start a family or expand their current family.

For me, egg donation is a privilege and I consider myself lucky to be able to give in such a profound way. The first time I donated, I remember vividly how emotionally good I felt. Pure, simple goodness in the knowledge that I created hope where previously there had been none.

I felt so passionate and positive about my experience, I couldn’t wait to share it with more women so that they, too, could experience the same.

It’s the excitement and joy that I feel knowing that I can help a family in such a special way that means the most to me. My next donation is already scheduled, and I plan to continue donating as long as recipients continue to choose me.

I didn’t have money to pay for IVF and tried other companies. I can never fully express my gratitude to Fertility Finance for making my dream of motherhood come true. You are responsible for giving me the most precious gift I will ever receive and I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Q&A

As a resident, I met several role models who helped further spark my interest in the field of reproductive endocrinology. It became clear to me that helping people create or expand their families was one of the most rewarding things I could possibly do with my life.

Reproduction is the most significant process that we do as humans. If reproduction does not work, that is the end of our species!

 I feel that it’s most important to cultivate and maintain the understanding that I am a member of my patients’ team. I am on their side. There can be so much unbearable frustration involved in prolonged fertility treatment, and I feel it is important for me not to look away and to make sure my patients know I am with them for the duration of the journey, no matter the outcome.

As a child, I was obsessed with Marie Curie and read her biography over and over. I usually never read a book twice!

Scuba diving, hiking, and cooking.

I love nature and hiking in Colorado is one of the best ways to enjoy it. Scuba diving is like hiking but underwater – it offers same feeling but with more equipment! Also, who doesn’t love eating a delicious and beautifully presented meal with friends and family?

I’m a sunny optimist for sure.
