Originally from Chicago, Irene is a Pediatric Sleep Consultant supporting tired families with gentle sleep and parent solutions.   She earned her Bachelors of Science in Education at Illinois State University.  After graduation, she moved to Florida where she worked for the Walt Disney World Company.  Since 2001 she’s been an educator teaching in elementary and middle schools, in the home and out of home daycares.  What she knows to be true is that children of all ages are ready to learn and parents can learn too!  Irene believes that everything is “learnable."

During her last years teaching in public school, Irene had first hand experience of sleepless nights and did whatever it took to get the sleep she needed. While at home with her second son she was doing a home daycare, and studied under Kim West, AKA the Sleep Lady to become a certified sleep consultant.
