About Anna

Anna, her husband, and three daughters live right outside of Johnson City, Tennessee. Originally from a suburb of Chicago, Anna taught gymnastics for over 20 years, and was a competitive gymnast through high school. For the last seven years, her main focus in gymnastics has been teaching 6 weeks to 6 years old. Anna absolutely loves to spend the day working with little ones, and partnering with parents to ensure their kids are developing appropriately. She teaches parents how to play, interact, and bond with their babies. This helps create a positive relationship between baby and parent, and sets up healthy building blocks for brain development and growth.

About HLO

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Happy Little Ones, LLC. Anna, founder of Happy Little Ones LLC, is a mom to 3 girls and a wife to a wonderful husband! Happy Little Ones is a sleep consulting and potty training service based in East Tennessee that works virtually with all family structures across the United States. Anna is here to support you through some of your hardest times of parenthood. Together we will focus on turning your sleepless nights into sleep-full nights, one baby-step at a time.


Good sleep habits are crucial to a healthy child. Being active, engaged, and animated with your child during the day (awake periods), helps them be more likely to sleep when they’re supposed to at night. It just seemed natural that Anna's path led her to become a certified pediatric sleep consultant. 


During quarantine, Anna's girls were having some sleep issues due to everyone being home 24/7, and of course the major changes. Through this hard time, Anna was able to use her own methods to improve her daughter's sleep. She is proud to say that they are all successfully sleeping!


By providing multiple gentle sleep training methods, Anna works with newborns through 6 years of age, as what works for one child doesn't work for the next. Sleep is so important for everyone’s health and well being. It is possible for you to have great sleep too. Anna is so excited to help more families get the gift of sleep! You deserve it!

Anna is certified through the Center for Pediatric Sleep Management. She became a Sleep Consultant in order to continue supporting families, improve their sleep, and to also spend more time at home with her family. Anna was drawn to learning more about the science of sleep and all of the sleep training methods. Anna is also a member of the International Pediatric Sleep Association, and participated in the Sleeposium2021 Pediatric Sleep Conference. If you would like to learn more about how to become a sleep consultant, please email Anna!


Anna has been recommended by Pediatricians, Nurse Practitioners, OBGYNs, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Doulas, Midwives, other moms, and more in the health and family professional fields.
