Hi, I'm Dr. Emily. I'm a pharmacist, a natural family planning educator, and a speaker. I empower women to care for and love the bodies God gave them.

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 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.

Not thinking about family planning right now? My passion for a naturally-focused lifestyle extends beyond NFP. I provide medication/supplement reviews to anyone who wants to understand what they're taking and who wants to only take what is needed, safe, and effective.

I am driven to empower women to make truly informed choices. Whether that's with your family planning or your overall health, I am here to support you.

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!

Dr. Emily
