Hi! I’m Kendra Hackenberg, founder of The Sleepytime Consultant. Sleep is so important for parents and their children, which is why I am passionate about helping to improve sleep outcomes. I know first-hand how a lack of sleep can impact a person’s everyday activities, health, happiness, and overall quality of life. Once sleep is restored, the rewards are numerous – not the least of which are that parents can enjoy their children more, relationships improve, and families are stronger and better functioning. I love helping families get their lives back!
My professional background is in Education, which dovetails nicely with my current work as a Sleep Sense Consultant. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the Pennsylvania State University; as well as a Masters degree in Reading Specialization from Johns Hopkins University. Also, when I became a first-time mom, my experience as a Division I Swimmer made me feel confident that I could handle the early morning wake-ups with a newborn. But, motherhood made the intensity being a student/athlete seem like a walk in the park! I now have two young children of my own and with both, I have seen the benefits of the Sleep Sense Program!
I feel so fortunate to be able to apply my educational background and current sleep training as a Sleep Consultant. My goal is to empower parents and impart them with the skills and strategies to instill healthy sleep habits in their babies – an investment that continues to pay off well beyond infancy and into childhood. If you are ready for a change (or even just contemplating change!) – I would love the opportunity to design a plan that works for your family.
