As a Nutritionist, Wellness Coach, mom, wife, and daughter I take my sleep seriously. I know that I cannot function at a high level with less than 7-8 hours of sleep. I believe that bedtime is just like any other time you are seeking relaxation; in order to get the most out of it, it is helpful to use all the tools you have available and create a ritual.

As the "leader of bedtime rituals for my family," i have introduced music, lighting, and nutritional variations to help us all achieve a better quality of sleep. We eliminate stimulants that might prevent us from falling asleep. To better help my young children, I play the Bedtime Beats CDs nightly in order to help them wind down. We even use them on car trips to help the kids sleep when we are driving at night! As a nutritionist, I am naturally vigilant about my family's "bedtime eats."

We strive to eliminate the foods and pastimes that are overly stimulating and choose to promote the foods that are more easily digested thereby promoting a sense of fatigue.

As your Nutrition and Wellness Bedtime Coach, I will be guiding you through the latest breakthroughs in bedtime nutrition. From my kitchen to yours, I'll offer recipes and easy remedies for sleep and relaxation. My recipes will be tested with care and aimed at your overall wellness.

I will also be providing simple suggestions on "how to" eliminate stimulants (many of which are hidden) and will help you make better food choices that lead to an easier body wind-down at bedtime. You will be surprised to learn how many better food and drink choices are at your fingertips. Together, we can discover all that is new and helpful for you and your family.
Sincerely,
