Our Team

Here for you, any time of the day ♥


Jasmine Hsieh
Program Director

Prior to starting Love & Kindness, Jasmine worked with literally over a thousand intended parent(s) and hundreds of surrogates and/or egg donors, providing consulting, translation, and liaison services. She has first-hand experience working with over a hundred surrogacy and egg donor agencies in the U.S. Her strong work ethic, commitment and performance are well-respected by other professionals in the industry; she has also spoken at the Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy (SEEDS) conferences in 2017 (Costa Mesa, CA) and 2018 (Chicago, IL).  

Before working alongside the intended parents, surrogates, and egg donors, Jasmine was a five-time successful egg donor herself. Her extensive egg donation knowledge complements her business intelligence background, which she honed during her time at a Fortune 100 company. Fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese, she then worked over three years as an international liaison for one of the country’s biggest assisted reproductive technology (ART) law firm. 

Jasmine started Love & Kindness because she saw so many of her past clients feeling dissatisfied, or even being taken advantage of, by their agencies, and her desire to be “the better option” and do better for her clients grew stronger each day. As the program director, Jasmine strives to make sure that the journey to become parents is as affordable and as stressless as can be, that the intended parents are paying a reasonable agency fee with a fair payment structure, and that everything is done in the highest efficiency and professionalism possible.


Whitney Gaetz
Surrogate Case Manager

Whitney has always loved helping others. She has an Associate of Arts Degree in Massage Therapy, worked in customer service for over 20 years and worked with children for most of her life.

After struggling with her own fertility issues for 4 years, she found out just how many people go through the same heartache. Upon completion of her own family, she decided she wanted to help others become parents too. She applied to be a surrogate and completed her 1st successful journey in 2020 and her 2nd, a sibling journey, in 2022.

Whitney has a passion for all things surrogacy related and would love to help complete more families.

Whitney lives in Minnesota with her husband and their two kids. In her spare time, she loves to bake, clean, travel and spend time with her family and friends.


Connie Aceves

Connie is passionate about helping people. She graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Exercise Science. Before working at Love & Kindness she worked in a rehabilitation hospital helping people recover from traumatic injuries. While working there, she was a surrogate twice and absolutely loved helping families grow. It was after finishing her surrogacy journey she decided that she wanted to be part of the team that helps people in the beautiful journey of becoming parents.

In her free time, Connie likes to go on adventures with her six-year-old twins. She lives in Boise, Idaho and enjoys all the outdoor activities it has to offer.
