Ginovanni & Lauren Vitale
Managing Director and Clinical Director, Founders
Married since 2008, Giovanni and Lauren started Whole Mission: Natural Family Planning Services to create a unified force for supporting couples in fertility awareness. Personally, they found a great gift in learning more about their combined fertility with the Marquette Method, and saw that there was more to be done to support the work of this ministry. They live in Michigan with their five children. Giovanni is a Master’s level psychologist and youth minister, and has worked with many couples for Catholic marriage preparation. Lauren is a registered nurse with a background in pediatric nursing, and a Marquette Method instructor.
