How it all started

Justin and Jill Bertelsen founded Crib Coaching LLC after having their first child, Ross. After many sleepless nights Jill sought the help of a sleep expert. That is when she heard about Kim West’s Gentle Sleep certification program. Jill had a background in marriage and family studies and thought this certification would help her achieve her goal of supporting families.

While hosting a parenting class, Jill found out about the need for childcare providers and parents to be on the same page when raising a child. From there, she and Justin launched Bertelsen Education where they provide continuing education training to childcare providers. They currently operate both Crib Coaching and Bertelsen Education and are dedicated to supporting parents and families.
