I'm a certified pediatric sleep consultant, mom of 3, and former elementary school teacher. For the past 6 years I have helped many exhausted families around the world reclaim the joys of parenthood with healthy sleep habits.
I have been in your shoes and understand the path down the endless road of sleep deprivation. Having a baby myself that has suffered from many health issues and rough patches of sleep, guided me to helping educate families on the importance of healthy sleep foundations and creating Serenity Sleepers.
Proud to Be:
Certified Sleep Consultant, Infants and Young Children
Voted One Of The Best Sleep Consultants In The U.S.
Certified Elementary and Middle School Teacher, State of Tennessee
Prior to becoming a certified sleep consultant. I obtained a bachelor and master's degree in early childhood and middle school education and had the pleasure of working with children for many years. Through the years I have developed a strong passion for educating myself and others on creating healthy and safe sleep environments for babies and children. After having my first son, who is now 8, I knew setting up and implementing the best sleep foundations was of highest importance. I became the ‘sleep guru’ to family and friends over the years and new I wanted to take it to the next step. Almost four years ago I took the plunge to become certified and live out my true passion, helping families develop peaceful sleepers and implement healthy sleep education.
I completed my certification through the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting and continue to take continuing education courses yearly. I was also recently voted one of the top sleep consultants in the United States!
Serenity Sleepers is committed to helping families develop peaceful sleepers using only the safest, healthiest and most gentle approaches that are based on the proper sleep science. My methods are unique and individualized taking a variety of approaches to help that individual child or family, there is no one size fits all or cookie cutter approach to my methods. Over the years I have always had a passion and desire for working with infants and children. Every child and family has a unique and different situation, and everyone should be treated with great care. One of my top priorities is devoting my time and efforts to make sure I create the right individualized sleep plan to meet each family’s needs. Educating parents and families on age appropriate sleep techniques and methods is extremely important. Teaching others how to implement the right sleeping strategies to meet their individual needs is one of my top goals. Being able to give parents and care takers the ability to help their little ones develop healthy, strong and peaceful sleeping habits is one of my main goals.
Life runs smoother when you are getting the sleep you need and deserve, especially on this journey through parenthood. I love helping tired Moms and Dads find excellent resources and support, as well as providing 1-1 customized sleep programs for better sleep. Having a baby or child does not equal sleep deprivation for everyone.
It is possible to set healthy sleep foundations and education at any age.
