Meet our new Sleep Consultant, Michelle!
What did you do before you became a sleep consultant?
I am a Pre-K teacher for Great Start Readiness Program in Kentwood
What inspired you to become a sleep consultant?
I was inspired to become a sleep trainer after living with my sister when she had her first kid and seeing the impact lack of sleep has on a family. After she hired a sleep trainer her and her husband’s life turned around and she said it was the best decision she ever made. I want to help families get their sleep back so they will be healthy and happy parents.
Tell us about your family.
I have two sisters and 4 nieces and nephews that are my world. I help out with my niece and nephews often and love having them for weekends at times.
What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Naples Florida because I have been going there since I was a kid and it holds so many special memories with my extended family. I love the beach, bike rides, walking around downtown, playing tennis, and the warm weather to escape the Michigan winters.
What is the best advice you have given to new families?
Regressions will happen. It is important to know this is normal and not to give up or give in. Stick with the plan 100% no matter how tough the night may be. Things will get easier with consistency from both parents.
What do you consider your sleep consultant superpower to be?
I can connect to all different kinds of people and make them feel comfortable in the sleep training process
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite place on West Michigan’s Gold Coast?
Saugatuck, I love the people, downtown, hikes, and beaches
What are you reading now?

Who are your role models?
My role model is my papa (grandpa) because he showed me how to prioritize life. He built a successful business while being an active father and grandfather. He gave back to the community and shared his success with the less fortunate.
