To put it simply, a well-rested workforce will outperform an exhausted one every single time.

Kim Valade is a Certified Sleep Consultant with Good Night Sleep Site and mom to an energetic little boy. Kim has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C. Through her extensive work with families, she noticed that sleep was a common theme. It wasn’t until she had her son that she realized how important sleep was and how challenging it could be. Kim read many baby sleep books in preparation for her son’s arrival but she found the information to be overwhelming and applying it in real life was a challenge. Then she noticed that all of her friends who had kids were expressing frustration about their children’s sleep as well and Kim found herself giving them advice based on her own research and learnings. That’s when she came to the realization that she wanted to help families sleep. So began her journey towards becoming a sleep consultant. She was certified through the Family Sleep Institute and trained as a Good Night Sleep Educator. Sleep consulting combines her passion for helping people and her love of sleep. When not helping families sleep better, Kim spends her time playing with her son. She also works and volunteers with an amazing non profit organization called Mamas for Mamas. In her spare time Kim enjoys reading and crafting.
