Hi! I'm Katie Pitts, certified pediatric sleep consultant and the founder of Sleep Wise Consulting. I have a bachelor's degree in speech and hearing science and a dual master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Educational Administration. For the past 7 years, I have worked as a speech-language pathologist in a school setting, working with children ages 3 to 21. In October of 2014, my son was born. From the moment we brought our son home from the hospital, my husband and I said goodbye to sleep in longer increments than 90 minutes. In a long 12 weeks, I had lost myself and was falling apart. I was edgy, couldn't concentrate, tired all the time...and worst of all, I wasn't able to fully enjoy my time with my son! After days of research and scouring the internet, I found a resource who taught me the importance of teaching our son independent sleep skills. Although the first few nights were not easy, it was one of the best things I could have done for our family. My son's demeanor changed into a happy little boy because he was finally getting the sleep he needed...and I became myself again and fell in love with being a mom! After this, I jumped at the opportunity to become a sleep consultant and began my certification process. As a certified consultant, I've undergone a comprehensive training and mentoring program which has given me the very best tools and knowledge available to help you get your little one sleeping through the night. I started Sleep Wise Consulting to help moms like me (and their little one's) get more sleep! I've had a very positive experience from implementing my training and I believe in it with my heart and soul. I'm passionate about sleep and would love to get the opportunity to help your family sleep through the night!
