Dr. Emily Reeves Graves

Dr. Graves (Ph. D., Texas Tech University) is an education expert, well-published in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks. During pregnancy, she suffered complications due to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) that resulted in kidney failure. After personally experiencing the traumatic change from career woman to a chronically ill, stay-at-home mom, she has actively cultivated strategies to balance her ongoing health battles with her desire to be a great mother and wife while staying professionally active.

Her book, How to Be a Good Mommy When You’re Sick: A Guide to Motherhood with Chronic Illness, was released in early February. Prior to publication, it gained the attention of Library Journal, which reviewed it positively.
