Who are we?
We are four women at all stages of life that have struggled in some way with our health and thankfully discovered solutions that truly work. We became teachers of health because we are passionate about helping our fellow friends, sisters, mothers and daughters unlock the key to their best selves!
Are you searching for ways to transform your health in sustainable, practical steps that stick for a lifetime? Do you struggle with fatigue, feeling overwhelmed and over-scheduled? Maybe you struggle with aches, pains, brain fog, bloating and other signs of inflammation. What would it be like to transform into feeling energetic, focused and present with your loved ones? How would you be a better you? What would that look like and how neat would it be to effectively lead your family to find the same success?
In each of our quarterly conferences, we will teach you what we know. Not because we are the smartest tools in the shed but because we have been there done that! We will share our real life struggles and send you on the path to fast tracking your health. You will learn through our mistakes and trust us we made plenty. We are more than excited to share our resources and knowledge with you to become “empowered’ on your journey. Each time we are together the content will be fresh and new but we will stick to four pillars to outline the topics for that event.
Our Pillars of Health
EFC believes in the power of vision. When we carefully craft where we want to go, then getting there goes more smoothly. Life definitely isn’t always “smooth”, but when you have a road map that is uniquely yours, you can get right back on track when life throws you those inevitable detours. Become intentional with your time, companions, thoughts and choices. It all starts with a vision for what you want your best self to be!
We believe that nourishment is a way of life. Food is fuel, and its potential reaches beyond caloric content. We are nourished by the essence of what we eat as well as the relationships around the table. From phytonutrients expressed in colors and flavors of whole foods to the creativity of preparing and savoring them in daily meals, we engage the senses. Embracing healthy living is a journey of planning, adapting and persevering. Being nourished is key for empowering us to walk in our God-given purpose.
As women we have allowed intuition to be our guiding light. We have always embraced our innate intelligence to “follow our gut”. Intuition guides us in making instinctual decisions to keep ourselves and loved ones safe. Our gut responds to times we are sad, excited, nervous, hungry and more. The gut is the center of our divine intuition. Like a beautiful rainforest our gut flourishes in healthy diversity. When our gut is flourishing we can empower and reconnect to our inner feminine knowingness.
We believe in the true authenticity of each woman who joins the Empowered Feminine Collective. She reveals this by walking tall in her unique nature, talents, and values. She will show up powerfully in the world by allowing herself to be vulnerable and open-hearted in pursuing her passions and committing to her holistic health.

Dr. Howerton is also an Air Force veteran and mother.
