About your Instructor
Irene Makriplis is a Pediatric Sleep Consultant of Lullaby & Me and has been sleep consulting for 5 years. Irene developed a passion for helping parents with their children’s sleep over her 10 year career as a nanny. She realized that every child’s situation is different and each child responds differently to various sleep training methods. Parents sometimes become overwhelmed and when one technique doesn’t seem to be working, they give up. It’s important to understand sleep training is not a “one method fits all” solution.
Irene earned her Associate's Degree in Accounting & Finance and also her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the City University of New York and became a Pediatric Sleep Consultant all while nannying. She was featured in the Parenting section of the Washington Post in regards to her sleep training & parenting expertise and is listed as one of NYC's Top 10 Baby Sleep Consultants! In addition to Sleep Consulting, she also now helps others receive their Pediatric Sleep Consulting Certification here at the Academy of Sleep.
Irene is now a mom herself and an owner and CEO of three successful businesses!
"Receiving your Certification is not enough, learning the business basics of how to launch, market, sell and expand your business is crucial and so many other courses are missing that! That's why I've included a thorough Business Unit in my course to help my students not just become Certified but to also be successful business owners like myself."
