Ruthie Chesness

Lead Surrogate Coordinator

Ruthie Chesness


Ruthie is a two-time surrogate and one of the newest members of the IARC family. She has a master’s degree in human resource management and loves working with people. Surrogacy is something she had known for years she wanted to do before having gone through her first journey in 2011. She most recently completed a second journey this past February. Just like the other surrogate coordinators, she has a passion for this line of work and finds it rewarding and inspiring to see how people can work together to make dreams come true. When she is not working, she enjoys time with her son and daughter and enjoying all of life’s little moments. Whether it is going to waterparks, movies, vacations, or just sitting reading a book together, she enjoys any time she is able to have with them. Ruthie is a true Jersey girl and loves her roots and her Philadelphia Eagles. She is a fan of the theater and also loves to sing and dance, often at the same time. As many will say, Ruthie is a unique one of a kind person and they wouldn’t want her any other way.
