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. Fun fact: "We have a Bernese Mountain Dog named Arya - yes, we love Game of Thrones that much."
  • Brandie Peltier

  • Social Media
    Marketing
brandie
  • Brandie was born and raised in Kailua, and is the youngest out of her five siblings. She studied at Northern Arizona University where she earned her bachelors degree in strategic communications. While attending school, Brandie was always asked what did she want to do after graduation. Her answer is simple, move back to Hawaii to help better her community. You will often find her volunteering, going to the beach, and spending time with her family.
  • Nisha Myers

  • Surrogacy Coordinator
    Surrogate Ambassador
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, she has continued to have a soft spot for all things surrogacy and infertility.
  • Nisha is happy to provide any incoming surrogates with as much information about the surrogate journey. We loved having her as a surrogate and are thrilled that she has joined our team as an Ambassador. She also serves as a Surrogacy Coordinator for our gestational carriers that reside in the State of Florida. Fun fact: "I had twins both of my surrogacies."
  • Breyonna Cadina

  • Surrogacy Coordinator
head shot
  • Breyonna is another one of our amazing surrogacy coordinators. 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? We are so thrilled to have her join our team!
  • Pomaikai Ibarra

  • Surrogacy Coordinator
pomai
  • Pomai is our born and raised surrogacy coordinator from Maui. After hearing infertility stories of her friends, she was moved to become a surrogate. Being a surrogate was a life changing experience for her. She is excited to now work at Hawaii Surrogacy Center and share her surrogacy experience and help others become parents. Pomai is also a mother of 2 and an owner of a dog running business.
  • Juliann Geril

  • Surrogacy Coordinator
Jules
  • Jules is our Cali girl living aloha on the Big Island. She's a mom of three boys and a 2x surrogate (1 boy and twin girls). Growing up, she knew about surrogacy through family members that were struggling with infertility. She always knew surrogacy would be part of her life journey. She is now 4th generation living on the islands and is passionate about helping others achieve their dream of expanding their family.

Happy Veterans Day! A big thank you to those who have served, including our Director Andrea’s husband and Coordinator Jules’ sons. We also extend our deep gratitude to a handful of our own surrogates who have worn the uniform and continue to exemplify values of service as they help others fulfill dreams of having a family. Finally, we have to acknowledge the spouses of our surrogates - so many of you are on active duty and you are huge champions of your wives, and the best injection givers! 🥰 May your day be peaceful and enjoy that free Applebee’s. 😉 ...

Meet our newest coordinator Jules! Jules grew up in Northern California and lived all over the west coast before settling on the Big Island. She is now the 4th generation living on the islands.

Jules learned the concept of surrogacy at a young age when her mother offered to be a surrogate for a close family friend. Since then, she knew that surrogacy was going to be a part of her life. After completing her own family (mom of three boys), Jules became a 2x surrogate (1 boy and twin girls)! She loves helping other couples fulfill their dreams of having a family.

One of the most rewarding things about being a surrogate for Jules is seeing the IPs face when she handed them their baby(ies). “I have pictures each time and their faces say it all! I get tears in my eyes thinking about it even years later.” It’s the best of both worlds for Jules now that she is a coordinator! She loves that she can still “experience” surrogacy and can help guide both GS and IPs. She has worked with several coordinators in the past and is well experienced which will be a big value to our surrogate ohana.
