Whole Mission Group
I am a pediatrician and love taking care of my pediatric patients on a daily basis, but I also have a great love for teaching Marquette Method NFP to individuals and couples. I have been a Marquette Method instructor since 2015 and find it very rewarding to help couples learn about their fertility so they can use the knowledge to both achieve and avoid pregnancy.
Fertility awareness-based methods sometimes get a bad rap that they can't be effective means of family spacing. The evidence-based science behind many methods shows otherwise. I enjoy enlightening persons about this and helping them achieve their fertility goals.
I do think as an instructor, I have an obligation to teach the spiritual aspects of the use of FABM/NFP. After all, I believe fertility was given as a gift and not something to be thwarted.
Just a little more personally about me: my husband and I have 4 childrens and a dog, Chico. I love nature hikes, reading a good cooking magazine (and trying to actually cook the recipes) and naps with the pooch.
