Getting To Know: Destiny

Progyny’s Patient Care Advocate

Patient Care Advocates (PCAs) are an integral part of a member’s fertility journey with Progyny, and we would like you to get to know them better. This week, we’re happy to introduce Destiny Fernandez, a Patient Care Advocate.

Name: Destiny Fernandez

What’s your background in healthcare/fertility?
I’ve been doing fertility for five years and worked in a reproductive health center.

What do you enjoy the most about being a patient care advocate?
It’s my way of saving one woman at a time and to change the way fertility is being utilized.

What’s your favorite/best moment so far at Progyny?
The Say the F word campaign – I’m kind of a truck driver and I just thought it was brave. It gives a voice to women who may not have access to our benefit and it shows we’re breaking down the wall of fertility.

What does family mean to you?
Everything, I have two sons.

Give one word to describe the impact you’ve made on a member’s life:

What’s a fun fact about you?
I have 22 tattoos and you can only see 2.

What’s the last TV series or movie you binged-watched?
The Handmaid’s Tale and it was only because I just finished the book.

Do you have any personal goals for this year?
To finish my master’s degree in human resources director with a minor in healthcare administration.
