About FertilityTies and Veronica Alvarez, Founder & CEO

FertilityTies was founded and created by Veronica Alvarez. While she has not personally undergone fertility treatments, Alvarez is passionate about online communities and "building products that help make the world a better place." She has over 12 years of experience creating, developing and running some of the largest communities on the web, having worked with Yahoo! En espanol, Yahoo! Personals, Yahoo! Avatars among other sites.

"By empowering people through access to information, a difference can be made," she says. "What better community to build than one that is based on family values and a desire to have a family regardless of your gender, religious background or sexual orientation?"

Alvarez's desire to create FertilityTies arose not only from hearing others' journeys and from meeting specialists like Rudy Quintero, MD (leading medical advisor for FertilityTies), but from a desire to serve markets that can greatly benefit from social media and Internet technology. Alvarez wants to help this particular growing niche gain access to desired fertility information, and help them to avoid frustration when controversial items appear in the media.
