Along with being Sarah’s Hiring Assistant, Bridget is also a major asset to our clients. As a certified sleep consultant, she is able to provide your family with guidance when it comes to getting your baby to sleep through the night. This service is offered to all of our Gold Coast Nanny Families. Read more about her story and qualifications below:
After graduating from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Bridget completed a year long internship at a Crisis Nursery providing care and therapy for children six weeks to six years old.
After this, Bridget proceeded to work as a full time nanny for six years. During that time, she was able to see an extreme difference in children who had great sleep habits vs. those who were chronically tired. The good sleepers were consistently more patient, had longer attention spans, met developmental milestones sooner, and generally had happier dispositions. That is when she began to research children's sleep habits and ways to improve them.
The information she found was overwhelming! From rocking baby to sleep to letting them cry it out and everything in between, how are we supposed to know what is "right"?
Bridget enrolled in the Family Sleep Institute's Child Sleep Consulting Program to find those answers and never looked back! Now as a Certified Child Sleep Consultant, Bridget is able to provide your family with some exhaustion relief. From providing you with valid information to tailoring a sleep plan specific to your family's needs, she will be there with you every step of the way.
