I am a single mother to four beautiful children with vibrant personalities – Cassidy, Colby, Owen and Mallory. They are my world, and it’s because of them that I decided to become a surrogate mother. I have helped create 2 families thus far, twins in July 2015 and a singleton in August 2017. I have enjoyed working as a qualified occasional teacher for the last 10 years and am very excited to be joining Angela and her team here at Canadian Surrogacy Community. I look forward to putting my experiences and passion for surrogacy to work in the coming years and meeting so many new and wonderful people along the way.
I grew up in Timmins On, a small city in the Far North and have lived there nearly my whole life. I completed my post-secondary education in North Bay On. I received my diploma in Television and Video Production and then moved onto University where I received my Bachelor of Arts immediately followed by my Bachelor of Education. I then moved back to Timmins raise my family and work in the schools where I grew up.
After the birth of my first daughter, Cassidy in 2002, I knew I wanted to become a surrogate mother. Fast forward 10 years and 3 more bio-children, I started on my journey to help create families. The road to surrogacy is not always easy, and mine proved to be challenging but I persevered and gave birth to perfect twin boys in July of 2015. I then moved onto my second journey in which I gave birth to a tiny, but healthy baby girl in August 2017. I have remained close with each of these families and am so happy that they now consider me to be part of their chosen family.
My whole life I have always been able to connect with people, it is something that I pride myself on. This has proven an asset as I have grown into the woman, mother, surrogate and friend that I am today. I am excited to start this new phase of my life with enthusiasm and anticipation for all that will come my way. I know that I will be an asset in many aspects of this community that Angela has so passionately begun.
