Snooze Fest is a sleep consulting service that works with families all over the United States. Its founder, Jayne Havens, is a certified sleep consultant through the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting.
As a new parent, overwhelmed by exhaustion, Jayne found herself reading everything she could find in order to get her own son to sleep through the night. She applied what she learned to both of her children, implementing good sleep habits very early on. Friends quickly took notice of the fact that Jayne’s kids were both fabulous sleepers, and they began coming to her for help with their own kids’ sleep challenges.
Jayne is a graduate of Boston University, with a degree in international relations and a minor in Spanish. Upon completing her degree, she immediately moved to Washington, D.C. to begin a career in catering management. Jayne first worked for Haute on the Hill, a division of Ridgewells Catering, where she catered events on Capitol Hill. She then spent over six years executing corporate and social events large and small for Occasions Caterers. She particularly enjoyed smaller parties in clients’ homes because of the personal connections she made with her clients and their families. These events gave Jayne an opportunity to help clients mark important milestones and happy occasions. Jayne left Occasions in 2012 to stay home with her first child, who was born later that year.
After many years in Washington, D.C., Jayne, a Baltimore native, happily settled down in Lutherville, Maryland, with her husband Jonathan and son Sid. Her daughter Ivy was born the following year. When she’s not working with families to achieve good sleep for their little ones, Jayne’s time is filled by chasing her two kids around, volunteering for various local charities, spending time with family, and also a fair amount of Netflix binging and candy eating!
