Pediatric Sleep Coaching Experience: I am a graduate of Kim West’s, a.k.a. the Sleepy Lady, Gentle Sleep Coach program.  I have been working with local Rivertown clients, clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as clients in Philadelphia and as far away as Los Angeles.


Background in Child Development: I have an MS in Education from Bank Street College of Education.  At Bank Street, I focused on child development and learned to create curriculum using the developmental interactive approach – teaching material that is constructed to work with the physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional needs of children.  I taught 7th grade humanities for 5 years at Bank Street’s School for Children.  Before teaching, I worked in book and magazine publishing.  And while at Brown University, I considered a career in archeology.


Real Life Parenting Experience:  I am a mother to Alistair (age 7), Clara (5), and Loewy (2).  I have made every mistake in the (sleep) book (at least for my first two).  I have learned through a lot of pain and suffering the value of healthy sleep routines.  I, of course, am still human and am still learning from my mistakes (see my blog).
