About Us

Our Surrogacy Agency

At Guided Surrogacy Solutions, we are confident in our team's extensive experience as surrogates, egg donors, and parents.

Kristen's dream of becoming a mother was challenged by her first kidney transplant at the age of seventeen.

Even in the face of setbacks, she and her husband never gave up on their dream of parenthood. Through their love and perseverance, they found a path to happiness through gestational surrogacy. Their journey was not easy, but their determination and love for each other led them to a happy ending.

Guided Surrogacy Solutions was founded by Kristen in 2017, driven by her experience as an intended parent and her expertise in healthcare technology and process improvement. Apart from managing the organization’s day-to-day operations, Kristen is dedicated to giving back to the infertility community. She served as the Pennsylvania state co-captain for Resolve National Infertility Week in 2023 and is currently a co-treasurer for SEEDS (The Society of Ethics for Egg Donation and Surrogacy).

Kristen, her husband, and their family reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they enjoy exploring the outdoors, experimenting with new recipes, working out, and creating new memories together. For a quick getaway, they love traveling to Deep Creek, Maryland or Erie, Pennsylvania. Above all, Kristen relishes being a mother and assisting others in creating their families.

Casey Zelmore

Assistant

When Casey was in high school, she had the same aspirations as most girls: to go to college, get married, and have a family. At the age of seventeen, an auto accident left her paralyzed from the chest down, and she would spend the rest of her life confined to a wheelchair. Despite this, Casey remained positive and never backed down from a challenge.

Years later, Casey completed her Bachelor’s in Early Education from Slippery Rock University and married her husband Rob at the age of 38. Although they both longed for children, Casey’s spinal cord injury made it difficult for her to carry a child to full term. Fortunately, they found a gestational carrier who lived less than two miles away from them, and their daughter was born.

Casey developed a passion for learning about the surrogacy process and enjoys explaining it to anyone who is interested in hearing about her journey. Casey is proud to assist Guided Surrogacy Solutions in helping intended parents and gestational carriers fulfill their dreams and create new memories for their families.
