When I moved to Salt Lake City life brought me a whole host of  new adventures; I met Marinda and Marie, and become specialized in  infant care and sleep support. 

I am amazingly grateful to work with such  talented women.

I have found more satisfaction empowering parents than I ever  would have while being only a day time care provider, and it is  infinitely more fun! The impact from the work I do lasts a lifetime and  brings comfort and confidence to families. I love getting to share my  expertise with parents and I love that I get to work with a great team   in developing specialized care plans that are fitted for each new  family that we work with.

One of the greatest joys I have as a newborn care specialist is watching a parent find that satisfaction on peace when their little one is sleeping peacefully through the night. 

When I first started on my path as a Sleep Specialist I did not know how much I would love it, or how natural it would be for me

While working with many families, I have had the privilege of  watching babies goes from stressed and overly tired and become peaceful, happy sleepers. 

I have also been able to witness parents move from a space of doubt that they will ever have a full night sleep and watch as they see their child ease into a natural, easy rhythm. 

I love being able to help families find happiness.

 I love being a part of building childhood  memories, the good ones that they will carry with them forever. 

 I love being a family and watching my husband be a father. I love watching him  get down on our kid’s level and become childlike himself. I love  watching him go do “man things” with our teen while I stay home and bake  a cake with the littles, and I love falling deeper in love with him  every day.

  I love Love, LOVE being a mom! I love  watching all little firsts; the first steps, the first words, the first wide eyed discoveries of the world, the first license, the first  girlfriend, the first speeding ticket! I love the dimples small children have on their hands where their knuckles will grow in. 

 I love the fuzzy halos of hair that glow on a baby’s head. I love a peanut butter  face that only comes from a child who eats their sandwich straight down the center, and how a toddler runs with a straight legged  hip rotation waddle. 

I love being a mom!
