In 2010, Heidi left her position as Executive Director of Shady Grove Fertility Reproductive Science Center and IntegraMed America to launch Donor Egg Bank USA with Michael Levy, MD. Donor Egg Bank USA was the first egg bank to ship vitrified eggs from program to program successfully in the United States and boasts more than 120 partners over two continents. As a result of Donor Egg Bank USA’s successful sale to California Cryobank, Heidi was featured in the March 2017 issue of Inc Magazine for having harnessed new technology in the creation of a successful start up. She continues to run the Egg Bank Division of California Cryobank and not only knows the business of assisted reproductive therapies, she has personally experienced it. Heidi and her husband are the parents of three children and have built their family through adoption and donor egg treatment.
