About Your Midland Sleep Consultant
Baby & Toddler Sleep Consultant
Hi there! I live in Midland, Texas with my husband Ken and our son Wyatt (8 months). We also have a dog named Groot! I graduated from Penn State University with my bachelors degree in Elementary Education and moved to Houston, Texas shortly after. For 8 years, I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade before choosing a full time role as momma to my amazing son.
I enjoyed making a difference in the lives of my students and working with their parents to create the best environment for them to thrive in. The opportunity to work with you as a sleep consultant in teaching your child how to sleep through the night allows me to continue the passionate work I have done as a school teacher.
In my free time, I enjoy exercising and going for walks with my little one. Being outdoors, traveling, and catching up on tv shows with my husband is how I like to unwind from the busy day-to-day.
Journey to Sleep Training
Unexpectedly, my son was born 4.5 weeks premature and spent his first 11 days in the NICU with breathing support. In addition to his breathing difficulties, my son also struggled with breast feeding. Therefore leading to added stress to supply my child with the nutrients needed.
Once my son was home, I realized that sleep was going to be a high problem. To add to things, my son was colicky and gassy. This led to a lot of fussiness, inconsolable crying and many sleepless nights. He refused to let us put him down for naps and bedtime. This lead to my husband and I holding my son during naps and spending countless nights holding him while he slept in our arms.
We finally turned a corner around 3 months, just in time for the 4 month sleep regression to hit! Now he was up every hour, all night long, needing to be rocked back to sleep. Only to wake back up immediatley within 30 minutes. It was exhausting and my husband and I were extremely sleep deprived. We had reached a breaking point and didn’t know what to do anymore.
I knew I didn’t want my child to cry it out alone in a room. I also knew I wanted to find a program that would allow me to teach my child in a more gentle manner. I found Live Love Sleep® online and was connected with a sleep coach the next day to discuss my sleep issues. I was extremely nervous, but we were able to start shortly after speaking with one of the sleep consultants.
Within 3 nights, my son was falling asleep independently in under 20 minutes with minimal crying and he was sleeping through the night! His naps were getting longer and this allowed me to have some time back for myself. I was happy to have time back with my husband now that our child had a predictable sleep schedule. I couldn’t believe after 2 weeks of sleep training, my son was so much more consistent in falling asleep by himself and looked so much more happier. I feel like I finally got my life back and I feel like a can be a better mom to my son too!
