Meet the Staff

Judah (He/Him)
Patient Care Coordinator

Judah hails from Toronto and spent some formative younger years in Boston. As a Paramedic in the Province of Ontario he’s accustomed to working in a fast past, every changing environment, that requires quick thinking and evolving people skills. 

In Toronto he was the co-facilitator of a trans masc peer support group and a trans masc social group. Prior to working in the medical field, Judah put his English and Philosophy degree to good use, spending years racing snowboards and working as a snowboard Product Manager…yes that’s a real job!

As an Ontarian, Judah had the opportunity to choose where he wanted to go for his surgeries. There was limited information and guidance in Toronto regarding surgery in the US and navigating the process. So now as a member of the Crane Center team he can share his experience with both US and foreign based patients. Judah wants patients to know, this guy gets it! He’s been there and understands the journey. 

When he’s not at work you can find Judah and his husband Jeff sourcing the best corduroy to carve or the best single track to ride, followed happily by their 120lb newf Ling Ling.

Valentina is a proud Trans woman. She joined the Crane Center at our Greenbrae, California office in November 2020. Prior to working at the Crane Center, Valentina worked at San Francisco Community Health Center as a Lead Medical Assistant. 
Valentina is from El Salvador and graduated from Universidad de El Salvador as a Register Nurse. She moved to the United States to pursue her Nursing Education with a focus on transgender care, since she had been denied and discriminated in El Salvador for wishing to pursue this dream.

Valentina is also Bilingual.

In additional, two SNF’s were awarded Top 100 SNF’s in the US, according to USA Today News.

Morgan, CPPM (She/Her)
Director of Operations

Morgan is an Austin native and proud Longhorn. She obtained her Bachelor’s of Science in Applied Learning & Development from the University of Texas at Austin . Her tenure with the Crane Center dates back to June 2016, when the practice first opened its doors in Austin as Brownstein & Crane Surgical Services. 

Morgan’s history with the practice has given her the privilege of wearing many hats, climbing her way up from Patient Coordinator to the current Director of Operations. In this role she brings the brand to life through conferences and events, partnering with members and advocates of the transgender community, and implementing standard procedures to enable the surgeons to do what they do best: help patients affirm their gender. 

When she is not working, Morgan is busy living your ideal Austin lifestyle. As a dog mom of two, she enjoys outdoor adventures, traveling, and the vibrant nightlife, concerts, and festivals in the live music capital of the world.
