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!
Anne is absolutely a dream come true! We finally noticed we couldn't do sleep training alone. We took people's advice and went for professional help with Anne. She really knows her stuff when it comes to training a toddler to sleep! My daughter is 2 and was still sleeping with us, we got her to sleep on her own the first night of training and were beyond happy that it was easier than we had expected. We couldn't have done it without Anne and her caring and empathetic guidance. Highly recommend her to anyone wanting their child to sleep independently!
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.
Amazing! Once my son turned 18 months, literally overnight he became a terrible sleeper. It was so bad to the point where he'd only nap while riding in a stroller or carseat and the only way he'd sleep through the night is on the floor of his room with me next to him. My husband and I couldn't agree on a sleep schedule and we were exhausted. My babysitter saw how tired I was and recommended Anne. We did the 10 day program and had amazing results! He slept on his own for naps and throughout the night! Now, a month after the program, my son still sleeps on his own without us intervening! I'm still amazed on how easily it is to put him down to sleep and not have to go in for 12 hours when he wakes up in the morning! Wow!
When it comes to Sleep Consultants, Anne is the BEST! I run a very busy doula practice in San Francisco and all of our doulas recommend Anne to their clients. Over the years, my clients have asked me for recommendations for sleep consultants. After many raving reviews from my clients, I will ONLY recommend Anne! Because, I have seen so many other sleep consultants, I can tell you the differences between what they offer and what Anne offers. Anne's program has structure and is adaptable to both the parent and the child. Anne has a passion for this work like nothing I've seen before and it shows when you work with her. Anne's pricing is fair and totally worth it! Anne takes the time to really look into what's going on and identifying the needs for your family, not just a "cookie cutter" solution because this is not a "one size fits all" type of program!
When I recommend Anne to the families I work with, I know that they will be taken care of and that is so important to me (and my business!).
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.
Anne has been a life saver for us! She helped us to train our 10 months old son to sleep through the night after three days! He is now 12 months old, still sleep every night for 11 hours straight and go to sleep and wake up happy. I did not know that was even possible since he was such a terrible sleeper, waking up every two hours, waking up to any tiny movement or noise. Our only regret is that we didn't call Anne sooner! We find that Anne's method is easy to follow and gentle, she is also wonderful to work with. Thank you Anne, you have transformed our life with baby!
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!!
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) !
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!
