How I became a sleep fanatic
I’ve always been fascinated by sleep and I realized this in school. During my Master’s in Neurosciences, I studied the effect of sleep on memory (Netherlands Institute for Neurosciences) and emotional processing (Harvard Medical School). Then as a Fulbright scholar, I studied the effects of sleep on the brain during my PhD in Psychology (University of California Berkeley) resulting in peer-reviewed articles in Current Biology, PLoS One, Psychological Bulletin, SLEEP, PNAS and other books.
The academia and science in these years was incredibly informative, but I felt I wanted to make a bigger impact than doing more research. From there, I worked as a management consultant at McKinsey where I combined my passion for leadership development and sleep management. I developed and facilitated training programs for both McKinsey consultants and clients. Some research I did on leadership and sleep was published in Harvard Business Review and the McKinsey Quarterly.
All of this made me realize how badly the world’s leaders and companies needed better sleep education and guidance, hence the founding of Shleep. We're so excited to be making a real difference.
