About Me

Hi, I’m Cara! I'm on a mission to help children sleep better. Before becoming a sleep consultant, I worked in the childcare industry for more than 15 years, as an infant teacher at an early childhood center, to being a nanny, and everything in between (babysitter, camp counselor, music teacher- you name it, I’ve done it!) I’ve always loved working with children- watching babies and toddlers grow and explore the world around them and helping children thrive in school and navigate new social relationships. But throughout my career, I realized that while I love spending time with children, what I am the most passionate about is supporting parents. Throughout my career I’ve met so many parents who were loving, nurturing, but also tired- which made it more difficult for them to be the most supportive and patient parents they could be. When you’re tired, taking care of yourself can become less of a priority. Since becoming a sleep consultant, I’ve helped hundreds of families take care of themselves by improving their children’s sleep.
