A Few Words About
Hey there! My name is Kelsey Hotchkiss, and it is such a blessing to be a part of the Sleep Wise Consulting team as a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant. My husband, Bryce and I both grew up in Southwest Florida, moved to the Midwest to pursue our collegiate education at Ozark Christian College, and are now back in Florida.
My Husband and I married in 2010, and I finished my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
The following year, I went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration at Missouri State University. In the Fall of 2015, we were delighted to add our son, Chandler to the family. We were so very grateful to begin a new adventure as parents, but we quickly realized that even after reading all of the sleep books and “preparing” as much as we could throughout my pregnancy, there really is no way to be totally prepared for the transition to parenthood.
I was fortunate enough to meet other like-minded Mamas who reiterated the importance of a routine, and we began healthy sleep habits from the first day we brought our sweet boy home.
As our son grew, many of my Mom friends reached out for sleep tips, and each time, it brought me great joy to help little ones achieve sleep success after watching their families struggle through too many sleepless nights.
Despite our efforts paying off quickly in Chandler’s excellent night-time sleep, we initially could not find a way to combat our son’s predictably short naps. For the first six months of his life, I could set my timer to his short naps, which was frustrating for two Type-A parents that wanted the best for their little man. After reading lots of fantastic advice from the founder of Sleep Wise Consulting, I signed up for a phone call with Katie Pitts, and our hopes for him quickly became reality. We were so thankful for Katie’s guidance in helping our son get the daytime sleep he needed, and upon seeing such fabulous results, I immediately felt a strong desire to help other families enjoy this type of experience.
Needless to say, I jumped at the invitation to join Katie’s incredible team!
When we welcomed our second son, Brannigan in the Spring of 2019, it was truly an amazing experience to implement all of my knowledge as a sleep consultant from the get-go. It was such a pleasure to teach our baby boy healthy sleep habits from the very beginning of his life, and we are so glad we get to reap the benefits of that effort as a family!
I’ve also learned that sleepless circumstances do not have to be the norm, and sleep issues are always fixable.
Continuing my career in education by sharing the importance of sleep and the “how to” steps to achieve ideal sleep is an honor. It is my goal to help families enjoy parenthood the way we have been able to- with a full night’s sleep and predictable, restful days!
I hope you will allow me the opportunity to help you achieve your family’s sleep goals! I am delighted to create a plan for your child, and it will be my pleasure to support your family through this life-changing process. The sleep your little one needs is the sleep you hope for; it is attainable and worth the effort, so let’s get started!
