My name is Marie-Eve, and I am a former sleep-deprived mom on a mission to help tired families get the sleep they need. When researching baby sleep coaching I eventually found Kim West and we started her Sleep Lady Shuffle method right away. It was as if a dark cloud had lifted from above our home, taking away my feelings of hopelessness, doubts, frustration and… exhaustion!
I decided to become a sleep coach to help other tired families get the sleep they need. I joined the Gentle Sleep Coach training program offered by Kim West (a.k.a. The Sleep Lady) and I am now the first person in the state of Oregon to graduate from this comprehensive program.
Many years ago I suffered from severe bouts of IBS and doctors repeatedly told me there was “nothing wrong with me”. While it felt good to be told that I didn’t have any scary diseases I was completely lost when the professionals seemed convinced that I was in perfect health while simultaneously experiencing incredible pain.
This ultimately led me down a path of figuring out which foods nourished me & which foods depleted me, with the addition of some self-love & sound nutrition advice, I learned how to feel my absolute best consistently over the long term with a few easy, manageable steps. Further courses and accreditations allowed me to turn the negatives into positives and create a coaching approach that is supportive yet direct and incredibly empowering.
