Thank you for dropping by and visiting the site! My name is Anne. I am a California native with an amazingly supportive family and lucky to have close friends who I would do anything for. I am a mix of sweet & spicy, and I’m the girlfriend you call to give it to you straight, yet supportive of course.
I created this site as a creative outlet. A place to share my experiences as a Mother as well as to share my love for food. As a passionate WeeSleep Certified Infant and Toddler Sleep Consultant, I wish to educate, spread awareness and share knowledge of the hot parent (yet often misunderstood) topic, sleep.
I am a wife and a first-time boy mom to a toddler aka my spicy meatball (as you will commonly hear me refer to him as). A little human who just lights up my entire life. He has gifted me a strength and love that I never knew existed.
I am a supporter of women, I am a supporter of parents, I am a supporter of choices.
I speak and write from a genuine place of wanting to help. While my path or experiences may not be for everyone, my hope is that someone will find the help they are looking for. I do not judge, nor criticize other parents. We should all have the right to do this parent thing, as we wish.
Do you Mama and just know that you’re amazing!
We have a tough job as parents, a job that I also believe is very hard to do without rest. As you will see, I absolutely love being a sleep coach! Women are amazing and this career allows me an opportunity to work closely with other Moms. I have a genuine love for children and child development. I have the pleasure of helping parents everywhere to get their little loves sleeping.
The bonus, I get to share my love for food (healthy & not so healthy) and mom life (the good, bad, and the fun!).
This Mama loves sleep, loves food, and was born to shoot for the stars!
Welcome to Sleep, Eat & Hustle!
A coworker of mine introduced me to WeeSleep and through their site I found Anne. There were many sleep coaches to choose from but Anne's bio truly stood out and I was excited to schedule our free 15 minute consultation. Anne from the start was professional, empathetic and so personable, I felt like we already knew each other. I immediately convinced my husband that this was the program for us and particularly that Anne would get our precious 8 month old baby girl to sleep through the night. Let's just say Mama always knows best, because that is exactly what happened. We followed all of Anne's guidance and truly trusted her to help us get through this. I went from a daughter that would only sleep on my chest and wake every 30/hour nursing to a full 12 hour stretch of sleep! Anne we are forever thankful to you for sharing your kindness and knowledge. What Anne provides that others lack is personalized attention. These are not videos and books you read (because who has time for that) but actually a set program that caters to your family. Thank you Anne again I can't say it enough you are theeeee best!
I can't recommend Anne highly enough. After her 10-day program, our 6mo son was consistently sleeping through the night (7pm-6am) and napping 2x day on a regular schedule. I am so thankful our close friend referred her to us. We booked the "Rescue Me - Virtual" package which included a 1.5hr video chat consultation (after sending her a few days of daily tracking), 3 x 15 min phone check-ins over the 10 day period, and full email support for a full 2 weeks. Anne customized the sleep program specifically for our son's needs (he needed to be held/sushed/paci to sleep, multiple night wakings for feeding/snuggling). Her program worked like a charm - my husband and I are thrilled to be sleeping through the night ourselves, and our son feels better, too. We started new nanny-share this week, and the nanny had only positive comments around his consistent sleep schedule - she wished all of the children she watches would be sleep-trained like our son. Anne, I hope you're still in consulting when we have our next kid(s) !
Five stars are not enough!
I had severe postpartum anxiety after experiencing birth complications. The sound of my daughter crying broke me down inside, but it got to a point where my baby was fighting sleep constantly and unhappy all day. I knew I had to do something and I was afraid to do it alone. I found Anne and she not only helped me teach my baby to sleep independently but my anxiety has also decreased tremendously. My daughter is happy, well rested... she seems like a different baby. I couldn't have done it without Anne's support. She has great energy, is very kind and goes above and beyond. I plan to recommend her to all my mom friends.
Anne has the mind of a sleep trainer and the heart of a mommy. She is committed, knowledgeable, and a professional at what she does. She made sure I was comfortable and answered all my questions before we started, and as we progressed through the process . Our sleep training journey was a bit more challenging than most, but Anne remained steadfast in her problem solving skills and support. She answered my emails in a timely manner, sometimes even in real time! I was very impressed and grateful for the individualized attention. Her caring comes through in her skill as well.
Sleep training is not easy for anyone, and for some it's even more difficult, I'm glad I've had Anne to help me through it!
We held off on sleep training our daughter until she was almost 10 months old, at which point no one in our family was sleeping well, and we realized we needed to make a change. Anne was a perfect fit for us. She is warm, knowledgeable, and responsive. Having her guidance, as well as a clear plan to follow, made sleep training feel do-able. Perhaps most valuable was simply the reassurance, from someone with experience, that we were doing the right thing. Anne was terrific about answering our questions along the way, as well as providing us with the necessary tools for success to carry past the duration of our program. For any parents who are on the fence about sleep training (as I was) - if you decide you are willing to give it a try, I absolutely recommend Anne to support you through the process!
Let me first start by saying that I was an emotional wreck with deep hesitation on sleep training because I'm a huge mama bear who caves every time my son cries a peep. Anne was AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE during the entire process, and my husband and I could not have slept trained our son without her! My son just turned 5 months old and required feeding, a pacifier, swaying, and sleeping on my chest just to fall asleep, and even then he would still wake up every 3-4 hours. My husband and I were exhausted. With Anne's 10 day program, my son now sleeps 11-12 hours straight per night! Anne is superb!!
Anne is a miracle worker! My husband and I were completely exhausted after months of waking up every 2-3 hours at night, and after just a couple of nights Anne got us all 6 then 12+ hour stretches of sleep! The best part was that she did it in a way that we were comfortable (not cry it out) and made the entire process very easy for all of us. She also revamped our baby's daytime naps and feeding schedule. The process she set us up with has helped us maintain 12+ hour sleep stretches at night regardless of ear infection, fever, teething, developmental leaps etc. Her program truly saved us. I can't recommend her enough!
Anne is amazing!! we live out in Los Angeles and she was able to help us sleep train our son via web chat and emails. She was always prompt and supportive when me and my husband had any questions. Her method with wee sleep is great and worked really well for my son. He went from co sleeping in our bed to sleeping in his own crib, in his own room by day one. The transition was smooth, and Anne was always there to facilitate us during the rougher nights. We slept trained my son at 7 months and he is now 15 months, he has learned to self sooth himself. We cant be more grateful for Anne's help!
Anne was a lifesaver! I literally called her in tears because my 1yo wouldn't take naps and was all of a sudden waking up at night. Before a trip to the East Coast our LO was sleeping for 11hrs/night and happily taking 2 naps a day. When we got back and did not fall back into our normal routine after a week I was panicked. She was so supportive and helped me be consistent. I was hesitant at first to hire a sleep consultant but I'm SO happy I did. Anne is lovely and our family is sleeping again.
