Kari Beadner, Execuative Director
Guiding Star Orange City has begun from a growth of FertilityCare Education. Kari Beadner opened Orange City FertilityCare Center in 2012. The Center teaches the Creighton Model FertilityCare System and NaPro Technology. It has been a natural progression to begin the process of opening a Guiding Star Center in Orange City, IA. Kari Beadner is the Executive Director, married to Aaron and mother to a 5 year old, 3 year old, a baby resting in the arms of Jesus and a baby born May 2017. Kari is a Certified FertilityCare Practitioner and a Certified Labor Doula. She is passionate about empowering women and families in their natural functions and fertility as well as encouraging them closer to their creator.
Becky Isakson, Vice Chair
My heart naturally aligns with the mission of the Guiding Star Project in supporting holistic and life-affirming ways. After going through my own struggle with endometriosis, infertility, and multiple miscarriages; I could only have hoped for something like Guiding Star to have helped me with these issues. My hope is that I can help be a part of a project that can provide services to women going through similar issues, and to provide natural, life-affirming treatments and support to many women across our region. Currently I am a stay-at-home mom and RN at Sanford in Sioux Falls, SD. I have a husband that is a Chiropractor at Isakson Chiropractic in Sioux Center, IA; and 3 children Molly, John, and Levi. It is an honor to serve as a board member for Guiding Star Orange City.
Jessica Worthley- Treasurer
Kristin Williams – Secretary
When I first heard about Guiding Star and read their philosophy, I knew I had to be involved somehow! A place that has a heart for women and offers a natural, holistic, and life-affirming approach to healthcare is something I care deeply about!
As a wife and mom of two, I especially see this need as I am raising a beautiful teenage daughter. In a world that is sending her all kinds of messages on who she is or should be. I want her to know her Creator and to see how perfectly He designed her body. My hope is to help encourage girls like her and other women on their journey!
I am honored and grateful to come along side of these amazing women in serving as Secretary of the Board. I am excited to see how God will work through Guiding Star!

Brynn De Jager – Board Member at Large
As a board member of Guiding Star Orange City, I hope to encourage and empower women and their families through natural family planning, adoption, child birth, breastfeeding and family life. Through the natural family planning process I have gained a deeper appreciation for women’s health and the miracle of life. I have been married to my husband Brody for 6 years and work in Purchasing at Quatro Composites. I am excited to see the impact Guiding Star Orange City will have on women and families in our area.
