Lindsay Jefferson

Marketing Specialist

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you know.” 
― A.A. Milne

Lindsay is a Marketing Specialist at Montana Surrogacy. She has her Bachelors of Science in Marketing and her Masters of Business Administration (MBA). She was born in Fort Recovery, a small town in Ohio. She then moved to Los Angeles, CA then Chantilly, VA, then Melbourne, FL, then Montgomery, AL, then back to Fort Recovery, OH, and now is back in Melbourne, FL (she likes to change it up). She is a single mom of 3 amazing kids: Caitlyn (8), Ella (6), and Carson (3). They are crazy but also what keep her going every single day. One fun fact about Lindsay is that while living in Montgomery, AL she helped deliver a friend’s baby on a bathroom floor (no…this was not planned, but yes…she rocked it).

Why she started working in surrogacy

“I met one of the co-directors of Colorado Surrogacy, Jennifer White, at the school bus stop in Montgomery, AL. She and I chatted about the new surrogacy agency she and her sister, Ellen Trachman just started. I told her if she ever needed marketing help, to let me know...even though I really didn't know that much about surrogacy. Six months later, I met Jennifer for coffee...she gave me a Surrogacy 101 class and asked if I was still interested in doing some marketing for them. I was so interested and excited about surrogacy after she explained everything to me that I didn't hesitate to say yes! Best decision ever.”

Why she’s passionate about working in this industry

“I love babies, and I love helping people. As a mother of three kids, I can't imagine not being able to have a baby. For me, it's very rewarding to be able to help people achieve their dreams of having the family they want, even if I'm only indirectly helping them.”

How she’d use her surrogacy compensation

"I would take a cruise! We live super close to a cruise port, and I always see the cruise ships at the port or out in the ocean, and I keep saying I'm going to take my kids on a cruise or go on a cruise by myself. That would definitely be at the top of my list...I really don't even care where the cruise is going. I just want to eat a lot of food that I don't have to make and have the sea put me to sleep every night.  Then, more practically, I'd use the rest to put toward a down payment on a house!”

What kind of intended parents she’d want to work with

“I would love to work with any person/couple wanting to grow their family. Truly...it would be such a gift to help them.”

No. Just no. I hear so many cheesy jokes from my kids on a daily basis that I just can't answer this question. I’m not a fan of jokes.

People who judge. You really don’t know what’s going on in someone’s life, so don’t assume and cut people a break.

hobbies.png

I don't have a loads of time for hobbies (I mentioned the single mom, 3 kids thing, right?!), but I do love to read and run. I also love sitting on the beach at night listening to the waves. None of those are really hobbies, I suppose, but they're things I'd do if I had more time.
