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 surrogacy center 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.
  • Rebekah Duncan

  • Intake Coordinator

  • Rebekah helps Intended Parents and Surrogates through the application process and have a great start to their surrogacy journey. She is a 2x gestational carrier and wonderful addition to our team.

    Rebekah spent her whole life in central Arkansas until meeting her husband at 17 and moving to Georgia. She has lived and traveled all over the United States. Over ten years of marriage has brought her family 3 wonderful children and 2 fur babies, a cat and a dog, who literally fight like cats and dogs! Don’t be surprised if you find her sporting a pair of Mickey ears, as all things Disney, Harry Potter and Star Wars are her favorite pastime!

    Rebekah’s passion for growing families and love for supporting Intended parents and gestational carriers has brought her to the agency to continue doing what she loves most!

She become a surrogate with Hawaii Surrogacy shortly after moving to Hawaii in 2020 and got to help bring a precious little boy into the world for an amazing local couple. Casandra knew she still wanted to be involved in the wonderful world of surrogacy and babies in general. So she started working towards her certifications as a labor and postpartum doula, along with helping screen prospective gestational carriers for Hawaii Surrogacy.

  • Breyonna heads up our program coordination efforts, making sure that Intended Parents and Surrogates take full advantage of all the special supports that we provide - from insurance billing and escrow management, to financial counseling, health coaching and therapeutic supports. This Midwest transplant is married to a local boy. When not guiding 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?
  • Melissa Farmer

  • Pacific Northwest

She is a 3x gestational carrier and serve as a case manager for our gestational carriers that reside in Oregon. She is currently attending Portland State University where she is pursuing her Masters Degree in Clinical Health Counseling. In addition to being a fabulous addition to our team, Melissa loves eating cheeseburgers, baking cinnamon rolls, metal hand stamping, and wandering Target alone. 
  • Christy Malloy

  • Health Coaching
Untitled
  • Christy provides health coaching to our gestational carriers throughout their surrogacy journey. From pre-transfer to postpartum recovery, she shares her knowledge of nutrition and mindfulness with our surrogates. Christy is a busy mom, health coach and founder of Dish You Well Health Coaching. Her passion for food started at a young age with cooking, creating recipes and of course eating. Christy never paid attention to, or even really valued the importance of proper nutrition until she was in her mid-20s. It was then that she experienced a weak immune system, anxiety, mood swings, digestive issues and PCOS. Her body was begging her to open her eyes and become aware of the changes that needed to be made. Fast forward 14 years later, zero signs of PCOS in sight, cycle is regular, anxiety still surfaces, but not nearly as much. Hers has been a journey filled with lots of small changes over the years. Eventually, Christy enrolled in the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute Master Health Coach Certification. It is her true passion to help others live a full, healthy, happy life.

    Surrogate Ambassador

  • Prizzilla was born and raised in Southern California with her four siblings until she enlisted in the Army after high school. She left the Army after starting her family and dedicated her life to being a stay at home mom to her two kids. Prizzilla and her husband decided to stop having children of their own, and after seeing Coordinator Nisha share her own surrogacy story, she decided to become a surrogate herself. She enjoys sharing her surrogacy experience through social media channels with those curious about becoming a surrogate or surrogacy in general.
