I am also a self -proclaimed former insomniac, inventor of a patent-pending award- winning product called Sognare  and CEO of We All Sleep.

My mission is to help you sleep well!  I have studied the science of sleep, interviewed experts and written about the topic of sleep. I also have written several other self- help books (CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE).

Research has shown that day time habits, activities and emotions can effective the quality of sleep at night. I am confident you can apply the various techniques in my books to TRANSFORM the quality of your life and get proper rest.

What qualifies me? I have suffered from insomnia for most of my adult life.  The problem started in college when I used to pull "all-nighters" to study. This poor habit threw off my circadian rhythms for many years.

My sleeplessness was made worst after the birth of my two sons.  Like most infants, my boys had problems distinguishing day from night.  As a result, like all mothers, I had to figure out how to get some sleep while my babies slept.

I've tried a number of over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription sleep-aids but worried about their side effects.

In addition, my husband's erratic work schedule wrecked my sleep patterns even more. Somedays he would get up at 4am, two hours after I'd gone to bed.  He would turn on the lights and interrupt my sleep.  I tried a number of things to combat light pollution and gave birth to my gold award-winning invention, Sognare  pillowcase (To learn more about this product, click HERE.)

As if light weren't enough, sounds were also an issue and being a light sleeper didn't help...  Even the slightest sound complicated matters.

To makes matters worse, after my husband left for work my running thoughts kept me awake! 


I was frustrated!  I searched for solutions to my lack of sleep and discovered the following:

  • There many scents, lotions, oils, daytime/nighttime exercises, sounds, lifestyle habits to induce sleep.
  • The use of deep breathing and mental exercises to ease my worries and improved my quality of sleep.
  • A variety of foods, spices and beverages that helped me sleep better

After applying these and other  tips, techniques and tricks I finally found sleep!!  I realized that search for well deserved rest depended on a combination of these and other factors.

Now that I had perfected good sleep hygiene this regime was  even more critical when  I was away from home. 

Even though I love to travel, I found it difficult to sleep on planes, trains, cars and hotels. The lights, noise and racing thoughts kept me awake once again.

To help me sleep while traveling, I also invented the 2017 GOLD award-winning Sognare Travel and Nap Pillow.
