Amber Lowe

Case Coordinator

Amber first learned about surrogacy at a very young age during a health class in high school, and ever since that moment, she knew that it was something that she would eventually pursue. She came to AFS as a surrogate and welcomed twins in November 2021 for the most wonderful set of IPs! Following her journey, Amber fell in love with being a part of helping other people’s dreams come true. 

In addition to being an experienced surrogate, Amber brings 14 years of management and leadership skills to her position. She prides herself on her ability to empathize and to offer the individual support and guidance that each surrogate needs.

Courtney Augustin

Operations Assistant

Courtney has been interested in surrogacy since she saw Phoebe on “Friends” carry triplets as a surrogate. After welcoming 4 of her own children, Courtney knew it was time to help someone else make their family.  In March of 2016, she delivered a beautiful set of twins for an amazing pair of daddies with AFS.

Since the birth, Courtney has been interested in helping other women become surrogates. She assists AFS with various operations duties, including surrogate medical records, operations, and financial and escrow assistance.

Courtney is involved in La Leche League as a volunteer and enjoys finding adventures with her family. 

Tina Barbagallo

Executive Administrator

Tina’s introduction to third party reproduction was through egg donation while in college. The thought of helping others in need was very appealing from the start and an added benefit was being able to quickly pay off student loans. Tina felt this was a “win-win” situation. To this day, nothing has compared to her experience as an egg donor. After each cycle she couldn’t wait to be matched again and help someone else. Eventually she began working in the industry and has made it her life’s work for over two decades.

“It never stops making me happy to help hopeful parents through the process of realizing their dream of a family. In sharing my own story with them, they are able to see the other side of the experience and realize just how much it means to help create a family.”
