Lisa's Story

Lisa just loves babies, and babies just love Lisa. Her whole working life has been centered on supporting little ones and their parents. She began training as a nurse, and specialized as a Mothercraft nurse, educating new parents on all aspects of caring for their newborns, infants and young children. Having children of her own, Lisa then spent many years working and coordinating in childcare centres, supporting mums and dads as they went back to work.

Lisa then perfected her expertise in sleep settling and early parenting support working at the Queen Elizabeth Centre, where she offered parenting support to both vulnerable families with government referrals, and private parents in a sleep school environment.

Alongside her Sleep Gems clients, Lisa now supports vulnerable families from a diverse range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds in Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs .

Lisa has always been the first port-of-call for her friends and family needing advice on settling their young children, and is just loving being a recent grandmother (nanny), with her daughter giving birth to a little girl in 2018 (pictured left).

"I would recommend Lisa for those at their wit’s end - like us. Thanks Lisa, for saving our sanity, and giving Louis the best gift of all - the ability to soothe himself, and get a great night’s sleep" Clare
