A few words about
Little Rock, AR
Hello! My name is Marissa Gianakas and I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant and blessed to be a part of the Sleep Wise team. My husband and I met in Jacksonville, Florida and we have two boys, Benjamin and Alexander.
Little Rock, AR
Prior to Sleep Wise, I worked as a nurse in the NICU for almost 4 years, I received my Master’s degree from the University of Florida and became a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.
Prior, I received a Bachelor’s degree in family, youth, & community science as well as a Bachelor’s degree in nursing. I have loved babies and children since I was little. I started babysitting at a young age and was a “mothers’ helper” for several families. My career path followed as I have only worked with pediatric patients during my years of working in the medical field and now as a Pediatric Sleep Consultant. When our first son was born, I spent many hours reading and researching sleep in order to help him become a decent sleeper.
Our second son did not follow the “rules” and what I had read in the books was not working.
I did not have the physical or mental energy to keep trying different methods while also keeping up with a busy toddler. When he was just a few months old, I began working with the Sleep Wise team and saw an improvement on the first night! I was so impressed with my results and was excited to be rested and refreshed again, I had forgotten what that felt like!
Sleep not only has a huge impact on a growing child, but also for the rest of the family.
My passion for babies, children, and families led me to become a part of the Sleep Wise team so I could continue to do what I love. I would love the opportunity to work together to help your family sleep through the night again!
