Nicole Johnson is Founder, President, and Lead Sleep Consultant of The Baby Sleep Site®, an online company devoted to helping parents of sleepless babies and toddlers solve their children’s sleep issues. The company was borne out of Johnson’s own experiences as a sleep-deprived mother of two. After spending countless hours researching baby sleep, Johnson was able to solve her sons’ sleep issues, and in 2008, she created an online message board in which she shared her wisdom and experience with other exhausted parents. What began as a small side-business has blossomed over the past 6 years into a full-fledged telecommute company. Today, The Baby Sleep Site® employs 12 sleep consultants, 3 customer service reps, and 2 administrators. The website itself has become the internet’s leading authority on baby and toddler sleep, and currently enjoys 500,000 unique visitors and 1 million page views each month. 

Johnson, her husband, and their two boys currently reside in Columbus, OH.
