Diana Olmeda 12 President & CEO
My name is Diana Olmeda, I am the President and CEO of Surrogate Alternatives, Inc. In 1997 I chose to pursue a career in third-party reproduction after a close family friend approached me about becoming a surrogate for her and her spouse. She had a severe medical condition that prohibited her from carrying her own child. Unfortunately, her health deteriorated quickly and I wasn’t able to fulfill their dream.
I had two previous, uncomplicated pregnancies and loved being pregnant, so the thought of being able to give the gift of life to someone else was something I felt determined to do. I met with a local couple and became pregnant with their TWINS later that year. I felt surrogacy was my passion so, after months of research and meetings with industry professionals, I launched Surrogate Alternatives, Inc. in March of 1998.
Built from the ground up when there were only a handful of agencies located in the state of California, Surrogate Alternatives has become known and recognized worldwide as one of the top rated surrogacy agencies in the United States. The goal I had in mind when choosing my career path was to implement the strong morals and values I grew up with and build a company my employees and I could be proud to be a part of.
I have spent over 23 years perfecting the complicated process of building families through third-party reproduction, with the knowledge and experience I have gained and shared with all of my staff. I always make sure my team puts the interests and needs of our Surrogates, Intended Parents and Donors first and gives them the personalized attention they deserve. I am confident in our ability to make each experience as enjoyable and as memorable as possible!
