I earned my B.S. degree after studying early childhood development and education at Viterbo University. That background, my experience as a professional educator, and my knowledge and expertise in infant and child sleep (I was certified in July of 2019), have allowed me to help parents all across the United States overcome their child's sleep challenges.
After the birth of my first son, I experienced firsthand the challenges of becoming a new parent and the lack of sleep that comes with those first few weeks of having a newborn. Between many sleepless nights, lots of coffee and tears, and my best friend at the time, Google, I found and followed many sleep consultants on social media. I learned everything I could to help my baby get the sleep he so badly needed. I knew how exhausted I was feeling, so I could only imagine how exhausted my sweet little baby must have been! Within a few nights, he, and my husband and I, were all getting the sleep we so desperately needed - my baby to grow and flourish, and us to be the best possible parents for him.
Now, my dream is to help other parents overcome their children’s sleep challenges to promote lifelong health and wellness for everyone in the family. I became certified in infant and child sleep consulting in July of 2019, and started my business helping educate other tired parents, just like me!
As the founder and owner of Lake Country Sleep, it is my pleasure to welcome you here, and to help you help your baby get the sleep he or she needs to thrive. It is my belief that a holistic and gentle approach, coupled with support, guidance, and accountability, is the best way to approach teaching the skill of sleep to your little one. I would be honored to work with you and your family. Reach out today, and let's get sleeping!
“In my opinion, healthy parental attachment allows for a child to explore the world around them while simultaneously knowing there is a safe and loving space for them to come back to whenever they need it - their parents' arms.”
