Today’s spotlight: Diana Thomas

Title: Founder and CEO, The World Egg Bank

Background: After a career managing multi-million-dollar architectural restoration projects, her infertility experience, and a profound desire to help women conceive, Thomas founded the world’s first commercial donor egg bank and started a whole new industry, without any business models to emulate.

Source of pride: “I am proud of being able to educate infertile women to expand their reproductive options and challenging traditional beliefs and misconceptions around family building through egg donation. Also educating fertile women to embrace social egg freezing as a way to secure their future fertility.”
