Hi there, my name is Brittney Stefanic. I am excited to be part of the Sleep Sense team as a pediatric sleep consultant.
Before having my son in June 2016, I was a full-time classroom teacher. I’ve taught high school biology, physical science and chemistry, plus alternative and adult education courses ranging from middle school study skills to high school geometry. I have a B.A. in Biology from the University of Colorado and a M.Ed. in Science Education from the University of Texas at Arlington. The Sleep Sense Program is the perfect blend for me because it allows me to tap into my knowledge of both science and teaching to educate and support families as they reach their sleep goals.
I am excited to be bringing the services of pediatric sleep consulting to my rural community because parenting can feel isolating, no matter where you live, but especially when you feel disconnected from goods and services that are available in other places. The parents in small towns are no different from “big city folk” in that we all deserve breaks during nap time, time to decompress after the kids are in bed, and uninterrupted sleep during the night.
If you are reading this and have the privilege of living down the street from a Trader Joes, Starbucks, Nordstrom Rack and Chipolte, consider yourself lucky! You can grab yourself a delicious iced latte, or even a burrito, and receive my consultation services from the comfort of your living room. Modern technology is amazing and can connect us in seconds. I might be jealous of your every day conveniences, but I won’t let that stop me from supporting you and your family in reaching your sleep goals!
