As one of six children in her family growing up, Melissa knows what a chaotic household can feel like. While such large families are a little less common these days, as a mother of four young children, Melissa has seen how a household with a few babies and toddlers can feel even more chaotic than a house full of teenagers given the right conditions!
Add lack of sleep – for baby and mom and dad – and it can feel like the family is barely holding it together.
Knowing that life will throw us all enough curve balls without having to worry about unpredictable sleep schedules (and all the challenges that result from sleep deprivation), Melissa has made it her mission to spare as many families from this stress as possible, sharing tried and true techniques she’s honed through study as well as years of personal experience to ensure everyone is getting a good night’s rest!
With a Masters in Pastoral Care & Counseling, as well as her Clinical Pastoral Education certification, Melissa has an ideal background in working with parents and families in times of high stress and/or transition such as bringing a new baby into their family.
