Shiva Price: Experienced egg donor and healthcare administrator
As vice president of global operations, Shiva Price leads marketing and business development for The Fertility Center of Las Vegas’ local and international markets. When not at our Las Vegas fertility center, she can often be found at national and international fertility conferences and events, providing information to physicians, industry professionals and patients about our advanced fertility treatments.
“I love interacting with patients, answering their questions and explaining the fertility testing and treatment process,” she says. “They are the reason I love doing what I do. I also work in operations to ensure that we are doing everything we can to not just give people a baby, but to give them a warm, positive experience throughout their time with us.”
A fertile career for an experienced egg donor
Shiva has spent her entire career in the fertility field. Long before joining our Las Vegas fertility center, Shiva’s first part-time high school job was working as a file clerk at a fertility clinic in the San Francisco Bay Area. Returning to work summers during college, she took on increasing levels of responsibility there, working the front desk, data entry, insurance rebillings, transcription and other administrative tasks–and learning about the process of fertility treatment along the way.
While her initial goal was to become an anesthesiologist, Shiva’s early experiences on the business side of a fertility practice revealed her true calling. “I really enjoyed the administrative side of healthcare, so I switched my major from pre-med to business management economics, with a minor in marketing,” she says.
Along the way, she felt a calling to make other people’s dreams come true. “I always thought that being an egg donor was such an admirable gift,” Shiva says. “I wanted to personally help someone have a family, and egg donation was a great way to do it. So when I was about 20, I donated my eggs to a couple who had had six or seven failed IVF cycles. They got 26 eggs and had a baby. I was really excited and honored to do that for them.”
Giving the gift of life was such a wonderful experience, Shiva donated eggs four more times while in college. Having gone through the IVF process as an experienced egg donor, she was eager to return to the fertility field to pursue her career. After she earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Santa Cruz, she returned to the same San Francisco fertility clinic as an administrative assistant, quickly working her way up to the executive management team by the young age of 22.
An eye for design
In 2004, Shiva left San Francisco to chase her other passion: Interior design. Aiming to tap into Las Vegas’ booming housing market, she planned to spend five years renovating and selling houses, but soon found herself longing for the fulfillment she had found in the fertility field.
In March 2006, she joined our Las Vegas fertility center as director of provider relations, serving as the liaison to referring physicians by providing information about the practice, advances in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, new clinical trial research, success rates and other important information. She moved into her current role in 2014.
Shiva’s warm touch extends to the interior design and décor at FCLV. Her interior design company, S.K. Designs, has done all of the design, décor and remodeling for our Henderson and Sahara offices. She was also responsible for all of the window displays for the Louis Vuitton stores in Las Vegas from 2004 to 2007, and her home has been photographed and published in an international design magazine.
Outside of work, Shiva enjoys tennis, golf, reading and sewing, in addition to interior design. She and her husband are parents to three cats and love to take weekend trips to attend sporting events and visit her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.
