A few words about
Western Slope, CO
Hello! My name is Erica Calhoun and I am Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant with Sleep Wise Consulting. I reside in beautiful Fruita, Colorado with my husband and son Cole.
Western Slope, CO
Prior to joining the Sleep Wise Consulting team, I worked in Associate Development. I also attended Colorado Mesa University where I obtained my AAS in Medical Assisting.
When we welcomed our son in February of 2016, we assumed he would “sleep like a baby.” As I held him for the first time I envisioned a future where I would peacefully rock him to sleep in my arms while staring at him in awe. However, getting Cole to sleep was not peaceful. My arms were the only place he would sleep, and after twelve months awe had turned into resentment. Cole also woke up every ninety minutes. This was not the “sleeping like a baby” we had in mind.
Lack of sleep had negativity impacted every aspect of our life.
Despite trying a variety of methods, we were unsuccessful in helping Cole reach his full sleeping potential. On his first birthday we decided to hire Sleep Wise Consulting out of pure desperation.
That one decision saved my family and my sanity. Sleep Wise Consulting empowered Cole to be the exceptional sleeper he is today. While giving him the gift of sleep my source of frustration quickly became my passion. I completed sleep consultant training with the desire to help families stop operating in survival mode and get the sleep they need to flourish.
As a Sleep Wise consultant, I will create a personalized sleep plan for your child while honoring your parenting values.
Together we will help your child develop independent sleep skills that will benefit them for the rest of their life. Your child can be happy and well rested! You can be happy and well rested. I can help you achieve it!
