"The people in my life would describe me as always up for a dance party,
but also the first one most likely ready for bed."
I'm annoyingly creative, painfully introverted (but great with people), and hopelessly low-maintenance. I get the most joy out of creative projects that let me express myself, and I love making handmade gifts for the people I love. I'm the "crochet hat girl" in my family, but lately I've been making myself a lot of cozy sweaters.
I am an Insomnia & Self-Care Coach. I'm also a social media influencer, podcaster, blogger, and author. I am certified in sleep sciences, life coaching, and meditation & mindfulness. My new book, The Calm & Cozy Book of Sleep is out on August 4th, and I can't wait for you to read it!
The CALM+COZY Podcast is by far my favorite ongoing creative project. I love being able to tell my story while educating listeners on achieving the healthiest, most natural sleep possible. After two years and 65 episodes, my podcast hit 160,000 downloads, and I'm so thrilled every time I receive a review from someone saying my advice has improved their sleep and changed their life.
It's my mission to help women embrace sleep as the ultimate act of self-care and self-love.
As a former insomniac, I know what it's like to lie in bed, completely exhausted but unable to fall asleep. My mind has spent too many hours racing when it should have been resting, and it affected my everyday life and my health for years. When I finally found relief from my bedtime anxiety I became passionate about helping others do the same.
When I'm not busy partnering with brands, reviewing products on my blog, or connecting with my Instagram community, I'm crocheting, kickboxing, or relaxing at home. I've been happily in a relationship with my best friend Jake for almost fifteen years, and we spend as much time as we can at our log cabin in the Muskokas with our chocolate lab, Bo.
I am a happily childfree woman who has had the honour and pleasure of being in the lives of Jake's three children, who are now adults. I just became a step-grandma, and the little guy is getting cuter every day.
Life is good, and I thank God every day for all of it!
