FOUNDER AND CURATOR OF SWEET DREAMS
As a mother of three young children, Krista is a firm believer in the power of sleep to lead to happier and healthier family. Armed with the understanding of the basics for healthy sleep, Krista took her enthusiasm to train with the Family Sleep Institute. Through her studies and experiences, it’s her goal to improve the well being of each family. Krista takes an individualize approach with each client, ensuring to consider family goals and the temperament of the child.
Krista holds an honours degree from the University of Waterloo. She’s an advocate for a fun, balanced, healthy and active lifestyle. When she’s not helping families get much needed rest, Krista occupies herself by running with her dog, baking with her 5 year old, giggling with her 3 year old, snuggling with her baby girl and daydreaming about her next home renovation project.
