"I'd rather be honest and authentic and disappoint some people, than to exhaust myself trying to keep up the facade of perfection."

Amber is an Intake Coordinator with Montana Surrogacy. She received her Estheticians License in 2006 from the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis and became a CAAPA Certified Lactation Educator in 2014. She’s been married to her husband, Mark, since 2007. They have two kids, Ella, born in 2008 and Gordon, born in 2011. They have 2 dogs named Olive (that makes 2 people on our team with a dog named Olive!) and Fern. They live in downtown Bozeman, MT and love everything about it! Amber is such a kind and generous person and was a gestational surrogate in 2016 and 2019, so she has first-hand experience with what an amazing journey it is!
Why she started working in surrogacy
“I was a gestational surrogate in 2016 , and it completely changed my life for the better. I wanted to work in a field as rewarding as being a surrogate, now I get to help other's dreams of having a family come true! I loved being a surrogate so much that I completed a second gestational surrogacy journey in 2019!”
Why she’s passionate about working in this industry
“I have known a lot of people with infertility struggles and I was lucky enough to have an easy time with all of that, so I wanted to pay it forward, first by being a surrogate and second by helping families find surrogates.”
How she’d use her surrogacy compensation
What kind of intended parents she’d want to work with
“Gay because I had such a great experience the first time with 2 gay men. They even stated that since they aren't women, they trust me to know what to do with pregnancy and birth and they didn't micro-manage.”
