Hi! I’m blessed in all the ways – husband that makes me laugh every day, stepchildren that allow me to love them as my own, and a sweet baby girl who lights up my whole world. I started babysitting for my neighbors when I was 12 and have been drawn to babies and toddlers ever since!
I was a full time nanny in college and for years beyond. I worked in Pediatric Oncology at Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin and I have a degree from the University of Texas in Human Development with a focus on Early Childhood.
Becoming a mother has been the biggest joy of my life! I have always believed in schedules and routines for kiddos and that sleeping is a must! I feel that sleeping can affect so many areas of life and if we can get that part right, a lot of the other things fall into place!
It is true what they say, you never know until you have been there! I helped a lot of friends get their children on a sleep schedule when I was single, but until my daughter went through the regression at 4.5 months old, I did not know the challenge of holding back to let your own baby learn to sleep on their own. I’m SO glad I gave her that gift and have been enjoying 12 hour nights of sleep and amazing naps ever since! It gives my husband and I a chance to connect in the evenings and have a very well rested, happy and growing baby during the day!
I am thrilled to be a part of The Cradle Coach team and to have the opportunity to give the gift of sleep to so many families! This is my passion and I am very lucky to be able to share it and experience it with others!
