There are a few things that have always been constants in my life: the dream to be a mom, my love of sleep, and my passion for helping others. When I realized that I could help other moms (and dads) overcome sleep struggles with their little ones by sharing my love of sleep as a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, everything came full circle.
Three reasons why I love being a sleep consultant:
1. Helping people is my passion
As a sleep consultant, not only am I helping the child get to sleep by establishing healthy sleep habits but I am helping the entire home! Plus I love sleep, it isn’t a secret! I get to share my love with so many families coast to coast!
2 . I know how important sleep is for mental health
Getting 8-9 hours of sleep each night is so important to me. I know that with just a few hours of sleep each night I am not able to be fully present for my kids. There were nights that I was sleep deprived when my daughter was born and I tripped up the stairs carrying her. From that moment on, I knew that I needed to make my sleep a priority. I was physically there but not mentally. Sleep is necessary to hit that reset button.
3. I am in charge of my schedule
I have the freedom to create my own schedule that works for me and my family. Time is blocked out each day dedicated to my sleep business. This is when I am “heads down” for calls with potential or current clients, to write customized sleep plans, or create content to share on social media. I also have time blocked out for time with my family – morning snuggles, dinnertime, and bedtime. The best part – I am able to provide support and celebrate with my clients when I am at the zoo or making lunch for the kids.
I am so excited about each new opportunity that I have to help another family navigate their sleep struggles and discover sleep again.
Teamwork makes the dreams work.
