She continued her surrogacy education as a legal assistant for over 5 years in a surrogacy and family formation law firm, and has an extensive understanding of the legal components of surrogacy relationships. In 2011, she opened Heart to Hands Surrogacy where she provides heart-based, ethical and exceptional care to surrogates and intended parents.
