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
    Pacific 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

  • Case Management
    Program Coordination
head shot
  • Breyonna is one of our fantastic case managers on Oahu. She also heads up our program coordination efforts, making sure that clients 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?
  • Ashley Bolger

  • Case Management
Screen Shot 2021-08-23 at 2.52.25 PM
  • Ashley was born and raised in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is completing her BS in Healthcare Administration and plans to pursue a Master's in Public Health. As a military spouse, she has lived all over the United States. She loves traveling the world and experiencing what new areas have to offer. Ashley was a surrogate in 2020 and loves helping people navigate the wonderful adventure of surrogacy. When Ashley isn't working she loves to read, paint rocks with her toddler, work her Scentsy business, walk, and hike. She has a serious love for shopping, and with Starbucks in hand, could walk the Target aisles for hours, usually ending up with a cart full of stuff she doesn't need! Along with her two daughters, she also has 2 boxers who secretly run the household. Ashley thrives on being busy and loves that Hawaii Surrogacy brought such a rewarding dynamic to her life!
  • Melissa Farmer

  • Pacific Northwest Surrogate Ambassador
    Case Management
7C983758-2A18-48A1-9DE9-7F0872E683BB
  • Melissa lives in Silverton, Oregon with her four sweet girls and wonderful husband of 12 years. She is a 2x gestational carrier and serves as our Pacific Northwest Surrogate Ambassador, as well 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. 
  • September Burton

  • Nutrition Coach
september-burton
  • September was raised in beautiful California with her 3 older brothers. After spending 4 years as a personal chef to Admirals in the Navy she began studying nutrition and growing her family. She had 3 babies and then began experiencing recurrent miscarriages which she used her knowledge of nutrition to overcome. She is now a mother of 7 including, a set of twins. Her personal experience with infertility led her to have a passion for helping others grow their families.
  • Prizzilla Greer

  • Social Media
    Surrogate Ambassador
Prizzilla
  • 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 YouTube with those curious about becoming a surrogate or surrogacy in general.
  • Mary Bates

  • Surrogate Ambassador
IMG_4516
  • Mary is a first-time surrogate and excited to share about her surrogacy journey and help educate others on the surrogacy process. Mary lives in the Sunshine State and is married to her best friend. She is a momma to four kiddos (2 daughters and two stepsons). Family is everything to her and one of the main reasons she was driven to become a surrogate.

    Mary is a US Navy Veteran, as well as a military spouse, so traveling is a favorite thing of hers to do. She also holds a Bachelor's degree in Family and Social Sciences from Fairmont State University. Some fun facts about Mary are that she loves llamas, teaching Kids Yoga, watching ALL sports, and everything wellness related!

This pandemic has caused so much change and confusion, so we thought it would be best to make our COVID-related requirements a bit more clear:

•Getting vaccinated against COVID will NOT disqualify you from being a surrogate.
•Having had COVID in the past will also NOT disqualify you from being a surrogate.
•And finally, until we are told otherwise from our clinical partners, a surrogate may be unvaccinated, but must test negative prior to cycling.
•As part of the matching process, we make sure that Intended Parents and Gestational Carriers share the same preferences regarding vaccination. •Contract language also addresses the vaccine, and following physician and CDC guidelines on COVID.
