Sherri has over 12 years of experience in the reproductive field as the administrator of an infertility center. She has been a Donor Coordinator with Elite Fertility Solutions since 2005. When her daughter went off to college, she wanted to have some interaction with young women and liked talking with potential donor candidates. Her daughter is married now and lives in Cuba, so she thoroughly enjoys her time interviewing and getting to know the donors. She interviews the donors, schedules their prescreening and collects all of the donor’s personal information and photos. Sherri follows up with each donor throughout the cycle to make sure everything is going smoothly. She currently has “over 70 daughters” and her family of donors is always growing.
