I grew up in The Woodlands, TX. I met my husband in college and we married after 4 years together. I graduated with my Elementary Education degree and began my first year teaching fourth grade all while newly married in 2011. I loved working and helping my students learn and grow so I pursued my Masters in Elementary Education with an emphasis in mathematics. I taught 7 years at the elementary level before becoming a full time stay at home mama to our two daughters; Nora and Quinn. I truly love helping others learn and grow, whether that be inside the classroom or outside.
So how did I become a sleep consultant?
When we got pregnant with out first daughter, I bought every single book out there about infant sleep. I wanted to be prepared. But nothing prepared us for the sheer exhaustion of having a newborn. It drove my eagerness even further to learn more about infant and toddler sleep which then allowed me to gather TONS of research (hello Google!) and implement sleep training techniques with our own daughters. It was a lot of work, but understanding how babies sleep and having our own sleep restored allowed me to happily help my family and friends with their own babies sleep troubles.
So this lead me to pursue my certification in pediatric sleep consulting. I wish I had someone who could have helped me during those early weeks and months of navigating new motherhood and also get the sleep I desperately needed. I wanted someone to just lay it out for me in simple terms and encourage and support me along the way. So here we are and now I hope I can help you reclaim your sleep and set your baby or toddler up for successful and quality-driven sleep that will not only lead to happier children but happier parents!
Sleeping is not a genetic skill; it must be learned.
You’ve been teaching your baby to fall asleep since the day they were born, perhaps through some form of a combination of sleep props such as nursing, feeding, rocking, swaying, patting, and cuddling. These actions have now built the foundation of how you have taught your baby to sleep. As your baby grows, they become more reliant on these sleep props to help them fall asleep and stay asleep. This can turn into a vicious cycle that can lead to boundless exhaustion for not only your baby but also for you. Because let's be honest, if they are not sleeping neither are you.
I am confident that we can work together to find a gentle sleep technique that works best for not only your baby but for your family's specific needs and parenting philosophy. I am here to help, support, and encourage you every step of the way. My services include creating a customized sleep plan based specifically on your baby's age, temperament, and your parenting philosophy. We will work together to log your baby'sleep so that we can make adjustments along the way. I can assist with crib to toddler bed transitions, nap regressions, weaning off sleep props, early wake ups, bedtime and nap time struggles, toddler sleep troubles, routines, and so much more.
The truth is that healthy sleep is not optional: it is imperative and strongly needed for our children and for ourselves. Boundless exhaustion is not healthy nor beneficial for anyone.
