Biography

In 1992, armed with a biology degree from the University of Redlands, Nazca entered the laboratory world of infertility. Daily experience with egg donors provided her with valuable insights into the critical need for a higher standard of egg donor recruitment. Her multi-faceted expertise, combined with her own less-than-ideal firsthand experience as an egg donor, became the unique platform upon which Nazca developed and nurtured ConceiveAbilities.

Having earned a national reputation over the past decade as a leader in egg donation, one of Nazca’s most passionate goals has been to use her own experience as an example to other young professional women that egg donation is a worthwhile endeavor that can be rewarding for both donor and intended parent. The resulting influx of such women has made ConceiveAbilities’ donor pool unrivaled. In the little time she spends away from ConceiveAbilities, Nazca enjoys travel and culinary pursuits, and tries to keep up with her two young sons.
