Leigh was born and raised on the Rhode Island coast and currently lives there with her husband. She graduated nursing school from Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island and soon after moved up to Boston to pursue a calling in hospice and palliative care. This was an extremely formative experience as she watched patient after patient die from preventable causes. It was during this time that she learned how important a healthy lifestyle can be in the prevention of many disease processes and decided to make a change. After moving back home to Rhode Island, she began working as a medical-surgical nurse and pursued
a master's degree in nutrition from Lasell University. Through her own personal experience and listening to the stories of women around her, she became increasingly interested in women's health; specifically, fertility and prenatal well-being. Leigh is also a National Board-Certified Health Coach and when she is not working at RHM, she works as a health coach to help women improve their lifestyle for overall health, fertility and to prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
In her free time, Leigh enjoys baking, running, hiking through New England and being on the water. Leigh and her husband are currently expecting their first child and could not be more excited for the journey ahead!

Kayla is a wife to Connor and mother to Cyrus and Nico, who keep her active and filled with joy. Living in Iowa, she works as a FEMM Educator from her home and absolutely loves what she does. After years of hormonal birth control use, Kayla had a feeling that she might feel better off of it.

Not only did Kayla and her husband successfully avoid and achieve pregnancy while using the Creighton Method, Kayla found a new passion for holistic living and informed choice. When the opportunity to take the FEMM Certification course was offered to her, Kayla immediately accepted and pursued it head on, knowing this was the path God wanted her on. She now teaches women from all over how amazing and unique their bodies are, along with traveling to her surrounding areas to educate and build a network among providers. Aside from learning all that she can about women’s reproductive health, Kayla loves to spend time with family and friends, go thrift shopping, spin yarn, and learn new crafts, all with her boys in tow!
