Hi y'all! I am Andrea, a mom of two, sleep consultant, and a registered nurse. From the very beginning, I had always wanted to help and care for people, especially kids. I grew up in Texas (Whoop!) where I obtained my nursing degree and shortly after moved out west to Los Angeles, California where I started my career as a nurse.
For over ten years I worked as a neonatal ICU and pediatric nurse where I helped babies and families during their most vulnerable of times. There was nothing more rewarding than being able to guide families through such a difficult point in their life.
Having seen how important sleep is to a baby's health and development, I knew this was going to be an important focus in my journey as a parent. Despite my background and experience, we struggled to get our first son the consistent sleep that he needed.
At that point, we turned to a more formal sleep learning approach. Specifically, we used a gentle sleep training method, tailored to our family, and our son started napping and sleeping through the night (and so did we!). I knew then, that I needed to help others in the same situation that I was in. I became passionate about baby sleep and obtained my certification in newborn and pediatric sleep consulting.
