Sheryl Anderson created an egg donor agency that blends knowledge and compassion
Sheryl Anderson is the founder and director of our egg donor agency, Elite Fertility Solutions (EFS). With more than 30 years of experience in women’s reproductive healthcare, she has a deep knowledge of the field and great compassion for prospective parents who are exploring third party reproduction.
Sheryl works to help each hopeful parent find their perfect donor. Our Southern California egg donation center features an extensive prescreening program for donors that is among one of the best in the country.
Sheryl’s goal is to reduce the stress and anxiety often associated with the donor selection process. Our California egg donor agency only recruits qualified donors who meet our strict criteria to ensure they have all the qualities desired by prospective parents. The extensive profiles and photos (provided free of charge) give intended parents all the information needed to feel confident they are selecting a donor that meets their desired qualifications.
Sheryl’s approach to egg donation
Elite Fertility Solutions provides a full service, sophisticated, compassionate and comprehensive program that guides prospective parents from the beginning of the matching process to the egg retrieval. Sheryl understands this process can be overwhelming. As a result, she brings together all the necessary professionals and coordinates their services, including psychological, legal, medical, financial and travel arrangements, to ensure the process is smooth and stress-free. As a result, our hopeful parents can focus on what matters most, the joy that pregnancy will bring.
Sheryl’s personal, hands-on approach through open, responsive communication is just another example of her commitment to the intended parents who come to our egg donor agency. She will personally work with you during the selection process to find the perfect donor. Sheryl also works hard to educate and support our donors throughout the process, from the initial match to the egg retrieval.

I still remember the day I saw the advertisement for Elite Fertility Solutions in my university’s newspaper; they were looking for young women to participate in an egg donation program. I had recently learned that some family friends were having difficulties conceiving, so with them in my mind I felt a strong pull to explore becoming a donor. Being an egg donor was never on my bucket list, but now it’s one of the life experiences that I hold most dear.
