Originally from Quebec, Canada, Louise moved to Southern California in 1978. She is an RN by profession. Louise holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from California State Dominguez Hills, and a Master of Arts in International Human Rights from Simon Greenleaf University in Anaheim, California, now known as Trinity Law School, in Santa Ana, California. She is also a Certified Teacher and Teacher Trainer of the Billings Ovulation Method TM.
Louise recently retired from her position as an RN Case manager for a large Health Maintenance Organization in California. During her 45 year career, she has held several administrative positions including pediatric head nurse and Director of Nursing in a Home Health agency. She is a writer, speaker, and teacher.
In 1995, Louise traveled to China and attended the Women’s Human Rights Conference. She has obtained a certification from the Summer International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France. In 2001, Louise was privileged to meet with the Secretary of the Pontifical Academy for Life in Rome and present him with a Model Declaration of the Human Rights of the Preborn Child, the subject of her Master’s thesis. In 2005, she attended a conference and extension course at the Ovulation Method Research & Reference Centre of Australia. There, she met the founders of the method, Drs. John and Evelyn Billings. It is also at that conference that she announced her desire to take the Billings Ovulation Method to Africa. Since 2003, Louise has taught the method to health care professionals, parish and village people in the Congo, Uganda, and Kenya. She has trained over 300 new teachers from all over Uganda.
Since March 2010, Louise attends the Commission on the Status of Women, a yearly United Nations conference held in New York. There, she promotes the Ovulation Method Billings.
In 1998, Louise founded Alliance for Life International (ALI), a Catholic-Christian, non-profit human rights organization based in California. ALI’s mission is to affirm, defend, and live-out the built-in and equal value and dignity of all members of the human family, from their earliest phase of development to their natural end. Our concern for human life also extends to those who reside in socially disadvantaged countries where the lack of essential medical care is a reflection of severe health disparities and often results in shortened lifespans. It leads us to cooperate with leaders to improve medical care.This is better expressed in the St. Raphael University Teaching Hospital Project of Western Uganda.
