Carey Flamer-Powell is an out lesbian and experienced gestational carrier, and delivered a healthy baby boy for a wonderful lesbian couple. Carey’s passion for surrogacy began even before she became a gestational carrier. She and her wife, Michele, conceived their now 4 year old daughter through fertility treatments and third party reproduction. Carey knew then that she wanted to help another individual or couple build their family one day. After many years of research and experiencing a wonderful surrogacy journey of her own, Carey founded AFS with the intention of making surrogacy accessible to every individual and couple. Carey has a particular passion for assisting LGBT individuals and couples build their family.
Carey is proud to serve as a co-founder of the Oregon Surrogacy Professionals Association. She is as also an active member of SEEDS (Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy). Carey’s professional background includes 20 years of experience in legal, operations, management and public relations. When she’s not overseeing the amazing work being done at AFS, Carey enjoys spending time with her wife and young daughter, exploring and adventuring through the gorgeous Pacific Northwest.
