Meet Natalie

Natalie, mother to three young children, knows and understands the emotional ups and downs that can come with having a baby, and how sleep deprivation can make life seem unmanageable.

Natalie Fitzgerald - Sleep Shop OC

After having her first child Connor (2012), Natalie struggled with some difficult months following the birth of her son. Having consistent routines and a sleep schedule that helped her son sleep through the night early on was one of the only ways she survived those months.

Natalie started helping friends who reached out for infant sleep advice only to find they were having the same success.

It became her passion to work with families – together developing sustainable routines and schedules aligned with each parenting style, while meeting the unique needs of these babies – universally and perhaps most importantly, the need for sleep! Natalie and her husband Danny welcomed daughters Kate (2014) and Makenna (2017) and as their family grew so did Natalie’s devotion to helping families adjust to life with new babies. Natalie is currently working on her Postpartum Doula certification through DONA International where she has already undergone extensive training to work with families during the perinatal period.

Meet Megan

Megan Pierson brings to Sleep Shop extensive experience in early childhood education and has a passion for assisting children and their families to lead happy and healthy lives.

She holds a BA from USC, Teaching Credentials from CSU Long Beach, and a Masters in Special Education from Chapman University.

While she spent six years at Santa Ana Unified School District, she implemented training programs geared for parents and their preschool-aged children. Megan knows firsthand the positive effect of creating and maintaining schedules and daily routines in promoting healthy living for all children.

Having spent over 400 days in the hospital with her middle child who was born with a severe heart defect, Megan and her husband learned the true importance of parents being a cohesive team and creating quality sleep patterns and schedules for all family members.

After years of research and speaking with doctors and mothers, Megan has recently completed, Yes, You Can!, a Pediatrician backed, easy to follow potty training/sleep routine manual. She teaches sleep, behavior, and potty training classes and also works with individual families throughout the United States. As potty training is one of the first chances children have to show their independence and take pride in their accomplishments, Megan sees this time as a wonderful bonding period for parents and their children.

She gives hope to all parents experiencing the “terrible twos” and having a “threenager”.

Meet Brynne

An elementary school teacher by trade, Brynn knows firsthand what an incredible asset healthy sleep is for young kiddos.

Heather - Sleep Shop OC
She has experienced the joy and attentiveness of well-rested children, and seen how debilitating lack of sleep can be for little bodies. She knows that research shows incredible benefits for families who have great sleep habits.  She knows that sleep is a life-long skill to learn, and that kiddos need time and space to accomplish this milestone.
However, Brynn also knows firsthand how scary the idea of “sleep training” can be for new parents. When her first-born’s healthy sleep habits flew out the window with his reflux and four month sleep regression, she feared traditional “crying it out” methods and knew there had to be a way to teach a little one to sleep in a gentle way for both babies AND parents. Two kiddos and years of experience later, Brynn brings to each family she works with a Master’s Degree in Education, a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Psychology, and a world’s worth of passion for making families healthier with the rest they ALL need and deserve.
As a certified sleep consultant and mama of two well-rested and joyful babes, Brynn’s ultimate goal is to educate families on the health effects of good sleep for the entire household (research has so much to share!).  She is here to be the support system and reassurance we all need when leading our children into the wonderful world of rest!
