Our Mission

One of the most important and difficult decisions of many people’s lives is whether to have children. Nodal exists to ensure the gift of life can be accessible to anyone by bringing the process out of the shadows and into the open. Today, we accomplish this mission by connecting intended parents and gestational carriers that share similar values. Tomorrow, we’re democratizing the entire ART system for surrogates and donors alike.

Our Team

I’ve always been a giver and when I first learned of surrogacy I thought it would be incredible to be able to help someone in such a life changing way. As a surrogate I can only help one family at a time, but with Nodal there is no limit to the amount of dreams I can make come true.

Ashley Greene

Program Coordinator

Over the last 10 years, I've helped my patients complete their families. Through Nodal, I can help even more people on their paths to parenthood!

Brian Levine, MD


I had an amazingly fulfilling surrogacy experience and it is a privilege to be involved with the Nodal GC Advisor Program to provide that same positive experience for the incredible woman in the Nodal network.

Brianna Buck

Community Manager

I’m a lawyer looking to modernize surrogacy and to help provide a better option in the industry. I’m also so thankful to be a parent via an incredible gestational surrogate.

Carly Vollero

General Counsel

I'm a designer who believes in the value of building tools that improve the way we live. It's truly exciting to help bring the surrogacy journey to light with a modern experience that not only educates, but connects people.

Heather Franzman

Design Lead

It took my parents 13 years to conceive due to issues with infertility. I wake up everyday excited to work for an innovative company that I truly feel is aiding those with the same passion my parents had.

James Langton


After having 2 kids of my own, I want to help others feel the joy they bring. I believe using technology, we can truly make a difference and enable connections where otherwise would have been nearly impossible.

Kyle Connors

Chief Technology Officer

Being a mother to my two young children fills my cup in a way nothing else can, and I'm so grateful to be on a team that helps bring this joy to so many others on their path to parenthood. It's an honor to shine a light on the surrogacy journey and help complete so many families!

Larisa Courtien

Marketing Director

Creating and nurturing my family has allowed me to discover great joy, insightful lessons, and intense love. I'm thrilled to work at Nodal where we help create families and all of the joy and wonder that comes with it.

Melissa Golubski

Product Manager

As someone who dealt with infertility and knows just how difficult mentally, physically, and financially it can be, I’m incredibly motivated to make it easier for intended parents to realize their dream of starting or expanding their families.

Meredith Gieskes

VP of Marketing

Nothing makes me happier than my own family. I’m proud to build a company that helps makes that joy more accessible to everyone.
