Get to Know Me
and My Philosophy
I'll be your teacher, coach, teammate, and cheerleader all in one!
Shannon moved to the Washington DC area after completing her degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Hartford in Connecticut. She has been teaching for DC Public Schools for 7 years and loves the connection she is able to make with students and their families. Shannon thought there was nothing she could be more passionate about than teaching until she became a Mother. With her husband, Fungai, she welcomed her daughter to the world in September of 2019 and was forever changed. Being a Mama is hard work but gives her all the joy!
Shannon became certified through the Center for Pediatric Sleep Management so she could make the best decisions for her daughter and then help others too. She is passionate about finding ways to make Pediatric Sleep education accessible for ALL families because everyone deserves safe, stress free, quality sleep - babies, toddlers, and parents, too.
Just like all families are beautifully unique, my Sleep Plans are tailored to meet the needs of your specific family. I don't believe there is one perfect Sleep Training method that is best for all children. I will work with you to figure out how we can get you to restful nights and stress free naps in a way that is comfortable for you and best for your little one.
I never judge families on where they are in their sleep journey or what decisions they've made thus far. I will always advocate for the safest sleep environments and your child's needs based on their age and developmental milestones. My goal is to get everyone in your family sleeping better in just our short time together!
I use a detailed survey and a follow up phone consult to design a specific daytime and nighttime Sleep Plan. Then, I am just a text or email away to guide you through every little or big challenge and to celebrate every little or big win!
