My name is Elizabeth Higgins Clark. Shortly before Elizabeth’s 30th birthday, she came across information that she never knew before. After learning about how rapidly fertility declines as women age, Elizabeth decided to freeze her eggs. Her experience has lead her to speak publicly about fertility education to young women and college students across the country. Elizabeth had gone to good schools, but no class ever taught her the things that she learned about fertility. She hopes her efforts will address and draw awareness to the gap in the curriculum. Although some people believe girls in their late teens and early 20’s do not think about problems that won’t come up until later in life, Elizabeth thinks we are underestimating young women. The CBS Evening News did a story about Elizabeth’s egg freezing in 2014. She wrote a Buzzfeed article, ’12 Reasons I Froze My Eggs Before My 30th Birthday’ which got over 10,000 hits on the first day it was posted. Elizabeth’s work has been featured on both Maria Shriver’s website and The Huffington Post, with her article about the ‘R word’ making the front page of the site. Originally from New Jersey, Elizabeth is an actress living in Los Angeles and has appeared on shows such as, The Mindy Project, Criminal Minds, All My Children, and on stage at The Williamstown Theatre Festival and La MaMa. Elizabeth shares her egg freezing experience and encourages other women to educate themselves on their fertility options.
