Hi, I'm Dr. Emily. I empower women to care for and love the bodies God gave them through teaching natural family planning.

I'm a pharmacist, natural family planning educator, speaker, wife, and mom. I love running half-marathons, drinking coffee with almond milk and coconut oil, and having dance parties with my kids.

After I had trouble getting pregnant with my daughter, I knew I never wanted to take birth control again. Plus, I had recently joined the catholic church and I felt an overwhelming sense of guilt about going against the church’s teaching. But finding answers to my questions about natural family planning (NFP) was tough. I never learned about NFP in pharmacy school, my doctor didn’t know much about it, and no one at my church was talking about it.

I have always valued a more natural approach to life. I love running outside. I feel SO much better when I am eating real foods instead of processed junk. Taking care of our planet is important to me too. I used cloth diapers with my kids and I swap clothes with my friends instead of buying new ones. Knowing that I can effectively avoid pregnancy without having to put extra hormones in my body that it doesn’t need is very appealing to me. I just wish I knew about it sooner.

I put in the time and effort to learn about NFP and now I have been successfully using natural family planning to avoid pregnancy for years. I have done the research and know which NFP methods are out there and what the major differences are. I am certified in the Marquette Method and I teach classes and have online instruction courses in this method, but I'm happy to help anyone learn more about all their NFP options. I am a healthcare professional, so I can provide you with a medical and personal perspective as you determine what is going to work best for you.

Are you having period, hormone, or fertility issues? I've been there too. Besides struggling with secondary infertility, after I had my daughter, I lost my periods and was diagnosed with hypothalamic amenorrhea. After discovering what was at the root of this condition, I found I could work with and support my body to cycle normally again.

I am passionate about empowering women to care for and love the bodies God gave them. Learn to use the Marquette Method of natural family planning from a certified instructor and pharmacist. You deserve to be wholly the woman God made you to be.

Thank you so much for visiting my site. If you have any questions or just want to say hi, please do not hesitate to contact me!
