  • You have ideas but you don’t know where to start
  • You don’t know the first thing about starting a business and what if you just want to work for an existing agency

Hi Friends, I’m Melissa!

I am the founder and lead sleep instructor here at The Cradle Coach Academy. I am a family-first mama, goal-oriented entrepreneur, to-do list extraordinaire, avid dreamer and unshakable optimist. I am passionate about training and educating women who have a deep desire to give families the gift of sleep, or to touch the life a new mother by walking alongside her.

You might have had a positive experience with sleep training that ultimately changed your life. Or maybe you had the world’s best newborn care specialist that allowed you to thrive during your child’s first few weeks of life. That experience sparks something in us mothers. We feel like we’ve been handed this secret we have to share with as many tired mothers as we can…because it’s THAT life changing.

This passion is what motivates you. It’s the secret sauce that creates a vibrant and fulfilling career and ultimately what pushes you to finally take the leap and help others by becoming a certified professional.

Being a Sleep Consultant has easily been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. After I experienced the life change of going through the process myself with my first child, I knew that a sleeping baby can literally change your entire experience as a parent. It sets the tone for your family, and brings so much peace to your home.

I love that I get to help parents experience this for the first time, and I love witnessing them getting back in control of their lives. My favorite types of emails are the ones telling me that mom and dad went on a date for the first time in months. Or that they are actually spending the whole evening together after the little ones are sound asleep by 7pm!

Becoming a Sleep Consultant is also so rewarding because I can do it all from the comfort of my home, and still help support our family. I love that I can impact and make a difference in others lives, while still being present and available with my family. Ultimately, doing this changes lives, and more than the convenience or financial benefit, that makes it all worth it to me. I am so grateful that I can be apart of bringing life, joy, and SLEEP into more homes.

With three kids under the age of three I NEVER imagined that it would be possible to have a “job” and still be a stay at home mom. A job where I could pursue my passions, contribute to our family finances, and where I did not need to sacrifice my role raising our children. Being a sleep consultant is THAT job.

I get to talk with other Moms and Dads about their little ones and help them to gain the great nights sleep their babies — and they — so desperately need, I make a little extra money to contribute to our family, and I don’t have to compromise being a stay-at-home Mom. The sleep deprived start of life with a new baby is SO hard, but it doesn’t have to last forever.

Just like learning to sit, stand, walk and talk, babies learn to be great sleepers. I love helping parents gain the knowledge and confidence to teach their littles to be great sleepers.

When I first became a sleep consultant, I was still working from home part time while also being a full time Mom, at home, with my then 7 month old daughter. I became a sleep consultant so I could bring others the same happiness, routine, and sleep that I gained when I sleep trained my daughter.  It turned in to so much more than that.

Not only was I able to literally change people’s lives (sometimes even saving their marriage!), I was also able to contribute financially to all of the “extras” I wanted for my family. (That was just the cherry on top!) 

Outside of raising my own children, I have never felt so fulfilled as I am when I get an email from a client I’ve worked with telling me about their child’s sleeping successes and the personal benefit they’ve received from it: their postpartum depression has gone away, they are able to spend quality time with their spouses, their child is happier and healthier than they’ve ever seen them – the list goes on. I am so incredibly grateful for this opportunity and for what I get to do on a daily basis.
