Founder of Sleep-Eez Kids and Sleep Well / Work Well, Dr. Whitney Roban considers sleep a necessity, not a luxury. She lives and works by one philosophy: parenting is one of the hardest jobs, made even more difficult when a family doesn't sleep. Her mission is to provide the education, solutions, and support parents need to get their families well-rested through her Sleep-Eez Kids private practice, as well as her Sleep Well / Work Well corporate family sleep program.
With a Ph.D. in Clinical and School psychology from Hofstra University, Whitney began her career as a child development clinician, as well as a creator and author of psychoeducational books and games for use in child psychotherapy. She then took her expertise to the Girl Scout Research Institute where she authored national research studies in the youth market and reported the results in various media outlets such as television and radio. After taking time off from her professional life to be a mom—during which time she sleep trained her own children—Whitney formed Sleep-Eez Kids and Sleep Well / Work Well and has helped hundreds of children and their parents sleep soundly every night.
Dr. Roban's unique and invaluable education, training, and experience as a child psychologist paved the way to her success as a leading expert in pediatric and family sleep. Dr. Roban is a regular contributor to and sits on the advisory board panel of the American Sleep Association.
