Meet Your Local Sleep Consultant

Our Good Night Mission:

Good Night Sleep Site’s mission is to educate, guide, and support parents and children to become a healthier, well-rested family unit. We pride ourselves in our research, ongoing training, and experience of sleep biology and proper sleep hygiene. All our consultants are trained and certified through The Family Sleep Institute, recognized as one of the few in depth and extensive sleep consulting training institutes and a leader in our industry. Each consultant is also trained as a Good Night Sleep Site Educator by Founder Alanna McGinn.

We want families to walk away from our sleep training service better rested and educated in why we took the steps we did to offer better sleep for their baby or child.

You will become your own child’s sleep expert. Every child is different. Every family is different. Each step and each sleep plan needs to be a customized reflection of that.

Alanna McGinn
Alanna McGinnFounder and Senior Sleep Consultant
I became a Sleep Consultant because I wanted to offer parents sleep training support and education that I wish I had when I was a first time parent. I was there in the same sleep deprived trenches as you. I had this amazing wonderful perfect baby girl who just wouldn’t sleep. In the beginning you know this is the case, you are going to be sleep deprived and responding to your babies every need, that’s how it should be. But there comes a point and your baby becomes an age where you can start taking necessary steps to teach your baby or child proper sleep habits and that’s why I became a sleep consultant and created Good Night Sleep Site. I wanted to offer parents the support I wish I had when I was in their situation.
