A Few Words About

Ashley Gunder

Welcome!  My name is Ashley, and I am so honored to be a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant on the Sleep Wise team.  I was born and raised in Southern California where I met and married my husband who serves in the military.  We currently live in Virginia Beach, VA and are the proud parents of three amazing children, Ava, and our twins, Graham and Grayson.

In addition to being a Sleep Wise Consultant, I work as a Registered Nurse with my experience being in the emergency room and intensive care unit.

Helping my patients and their families in a time of need is a strong passion of mine.

Before my daughter was born, I read a few sleep books and implemented the building blocks to maintain a healthy sleep routine.  When I found out I was pregnant with twins there was excitement, shock, worry, and a few anxious tears.  I had countless questions, but at the top of that list was “How will I ever sleep again?”  My daughter was a great sleeper, but that came as a result of a consistent routine, dedication, and time.  I struggled with how I could devote that much time to two babies’ schedules, while simultaneously caring for my daughter, working, and often running the household by myself while my husband was away.

I was anxious and nervous that my predictability and routine would slip away!  Well, guess what!?  The same strategies worked!

It wasn’t easy, and we hit a few roadblocks, but we asked questions and stayed consistent.  This is where my passion for sleep consulting began.

I truly feel that implementing healthy sleep habits early set our family on the right path to long-term sleep success! I’ve experienced firsthand how teaching independent sleep skills can lead to happy babies, a happy family, and well-rested parents.

When a family is not sleep deprived, they can thrive and make wonderful memories!

As a mom, when you see your family thriving, it boosts your confidence, and it’s that increased confidence that beats the overwhelm of parenthood!

I would love to come alongside you in your parenting journey and create a sleep plan that works for your family’s needs.

Let me help you get the rest you and your child need to thrive, find your confidence, and avoid the overwhelm!  I will be there to guide and cheer you on every step of the way.  Raising children is hard, but it doesn’t have to be sleepless.  Let’s talk more about your family and get started today!

Sleep Philosophy

When a family is not sleep deprived, they can thrive and make wonderful memories together!

"When I reached out to Ashley, I was beyond sleep deprived and not thriving in many areas of my life. In just a few days after receiving our sleep plan, my son was effortlessly putting himself to sleep and sleeping through the night. The changes were night and day. I noticed huge leaps and growth happen in my baby after he got restorative sleep, and I was sleeping for the first time since he was born! If you're tired and feeing defeated by the endless sleepless nights, do not hesitate to call will change your life!" Mom of an 8 month old
