my favourite things:
I like binge watching shows on Netflix, a lot of crime dramas, and binge reading novels, again, a lot of crime dramas. I like listening to podcasts to get me through cleaning up the kitchen and taking a walk every night after dinner. I LOVE going to Target alone, going to the movies with my husband, and going to Disneyland with my kiddos. I love my morning cups of coffee, even if they are cold by the time I get to finishing them, and I love dark chocolate. Well, most desserts really. It’s a problem.
more about me
Before I was a Sleep Angel: I was an elementary school teacher.
Part of Pam’s Dream Team since: September, 2016
Where I live: Los Angeles, California
why be a sleep angel?
I am thrilled to be a part of Pam’s team of sleep consultants! Before joining the Dream Team, I was always recommending Pam to sleep deprived parents, because I truly believe in the process she uses to teach these babies the beautiful gift and skill of sleep. I want to be able to help families get the sleep they need and make a difference in their lives the way Pam did for my husband and I. Plus, it’s so fun meeting all these families from all over the U.S. and Canada!
life before pam
I am a former client of Pam’s. Before hiring her, my life consisted of pacifiers, a lot of bouncing and rocking, various swaddles, shh-ing to the tune of any song I could think of, butt patting, back rubbing, darkened rooms, and prayers that my precious, incredible daughter Olivia would just fall asleep already! And stay asleep! These were my nights. My days consisted of Olivia sleeping anywhere but her crib, because there was no way she was staying asleep there. So she slept in my arms, in the rocker thing, her car seat, or in her stroller so I could get out of the house to meet up with friends and vent about how deliriously tired I was. I would fantasize about going down the street and checking into a hotel, ALONE, so I could sleep. I was surviving off coffee and carbs and could never remember when I had showered last. My husband was working incredibly hard at work, putting in long hours and traveling a lot, so I was doing a lot of the sleep stuff alone.
Life After Pam
Pam has since helped my husband and I teach both Olivia and Kent to be rock-star sleepers. They both sleep 11-12 hours a night and Kent naps for 2.5 hours in the afternoon. My children enjoy their bedtime routine and love sleeping, because they know how good they feel when they wake up well rested. Pam taught us to make sleep a priority in our family and because of that, we are happier, more patient, and way more fun to be around. My husband and I actually have time to go out on dates! And we don’t worry about leaving our kids with a sitter because we know they are sound asleep and won’t wake until morning.
