Our Team

  • Andrea Hoshmand McAfee

  • Founder & Director
SB2_7738_rt
  • Andrea founded Hawaii Surrogacy in 2008 to meet the need for gestational carriers on Oahu and neighboring islands. Many local families were going to the mainland for services, leading to expensive and impersonal surrogacy journeys. Over ten years, Andrea established strong working relationships with every fertility clinic in Hawaii, as well as nationally and internationally renowned legal professionals specializing in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).
  • Most importantly, she feels honored that so many Intended Parents have trusted her agency to help complete their families. You will often find Andrea chatting at all hours with parents from Ewa Beach, Kahului, Seattle or even Sydney, Australia. She loves providing as much information as possible to clients (with a side of humor) so that they can feel confident about their investment in the surrogacy process.
  • Andrea is a graduate of Punahou School, Questrom School of Business at Boston University, and Maryland School of Public Policy. She is married to an Army veteran and has two children.
  • Kendra Lovitt

  • Intake & Screening
    Northwest Regional Coordinator
Kendra
  • Kendra lives in Northern California. She is married with a son and a daughter, and two dogs. She has been a surrogate herself and delivered a healthy set of identical twin boys. Kendra holds a BA in Psychology with an emphasis in Women's Studies. She has completed her doula training and is trained as a birth doula and as a post partum doula. Kendra loves spending time with her family and their dogs, going to the beach, surfing, camping and cooking! Our surrogates that reside in Oregon, California and Washington are blessed to be supported by Kendra through their entire journey.
  • Nisha Glapion

  • Medical Pre-Screening
    Case Management
Nisha
  • Nisha was born in Germany, but grew up in Phoenix, AZ. After having her own children, she could not imagine life without them and her heart ached for people struggling to have their family. Upon coming across the opportunity of being a surrogate, Nisha felt this was her chance to help a couple's dream come true.
  • As a 2x gestational surrogate (where she carried twins for both journeys), she has continued to have a soft spot for all things surrogacy and infertility. We were thrilled when she joined our team as a staff member, as it was a joy to work with her as one of our surrogates.
  • Nisha is a Registered Nurse and currently resides in the Jacksonville area. She reviews all incoming surrogate medical records, as well as providing journey support for our Florida families and clients in other mainland states.
  • Breyonna Cadina

  • Clinical Coordination
    Case Management
head shot
  • Breyonna is our main coordinator on Oahu. She also heads up our clinical coordination efforts, so she has a close relationship with all our surrogates as they undergo their transfer cycles. This Midwest transplant is married to a local boy. When not attending appointments or meeting with IPs and surrogates, you’ll find her on the sidelines cheering at her kids soccer games. We love her “can do” attitude and fabulous sense of humor. Truly, nothing phases Breyonna, but what else would you expect from a mama of four?
  • Angela Padilla

  • Case Management
Angela
  • Angela was born and raised in San Diego, California, where she met her husband of 13 years.  They've since lived in Arizona, Oregon and Hawaii while raising their three beautiful children.  Angela knew after having her youngest child that she wanted to be a surrogate to help a family in need.  She was a gestational surrogate in 2014 and 2016, both times carrying twins for international families.

    Angela has worked as a Surrogate Case Manager before and loved helping families through their entire journey. After taking a little break and focusing on other passions, she decided that she wanted to continue help build families through surrogacy and joined the team at the Hawaii Surrogacy Center. Angela brings her vast experience in administration, human resources and customer care for the last 17 years. When she's not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, dancing, traveling, journaling and enjoying a hot espresso while watching the sunrise.
  • Drea Spinale

  • Case Management
Andrea Spinale
  • Drea is from a small town in Vermont, but has lived on Maui for almost four years caring for both the kupuna and the keiki. In addition to being a surrogacy coordinator, she provides in-home physical therapy and is also a nanny. Drea has had many experiences that have led her to where she is today. They range from Dude Ranch Wrangler, Postal Letter Carrier, Daycare owner, live in nanny, college softball coach, Director of Rehab and physical therapist assistant. Each one taught her that she enjoys helping people of all ages to better their lives and reach their goals. While she doesn’t have her own children yet, she is so excited to be part of a team that contributes to fulfilling this dream everyday.
