THE FAMILY FORWARD TEAM
Sandra Litsinger Lippard - Founder of Family Forward Surrogacy
Sandra became passionate about surrogacy when she was unable to carry her own children. She worked with a wonderful Gestational Surrogate, who carried her twin girls. They are still friendly today. Based on her experience Sandra wants to help others experience the joy of parenthood through Gestational Surrogacy.
As president of the agency, Sandra handles Intended Parent relations, finance and administration, management, and oversees FFS’s relationships with IVF clinics, attorneys, insurance professionals, social workers, and psychologists. In addition, Sandra manages the strategy used in recruiting superior Gestational Surrogates for each Intended Parent, through a number of methods including leveraging social media and websites popular with surrogates.
Sandra brings over 16 years of experience in technical education and marketing to the FFS team. She has worked for companies such as 3Com, Nortel Networks, Comverse Technologies, and Openwave (formerly Phone.com) helping them launch new products and recruit users. Throughout her career Sandra has presented at numerous industry panels and educational seminars around the world, to advocate for new platforms and educate corporate customers, consumers, and web developers on the benefits of using various new technologies. Sandra brings her management and marketing experience to FFS.
