About Dr. Roban

Family Sleep Specialist/Corporate Family Sleep Consultant
Contributor & Advisory Board Member of the American Sleep Association

Founder of SLEEP-EEZ KIDZ 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 most 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 raise great sleepers through her SLEEP-EEZ KIDZ 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 KIDZ 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 and sits on the advisory board panel of the American Sleep Association.  She is also a regular contributor to the Huffington Post Sleep & Wellness, as well as Thrive Global.  She has been published internationally on the Huffington Post in both France and Canada.  She has written for, collaborated with, and has done numerous webinars, corporate sleep workshops, and public speaking engagements for national publications and organizations such as The Huffington Post, The American Sleep Association, Thrive Global, Working Mother Magazine, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, The National Association of Mothers Centers, Proctor & Gamble, LinkedIn, Viacord, Rosie Pope Maternity, Mom Corps, Bright Horizons, The New York Baby Show, The 14th Street Y, Baby Bites, Modern Mom, The Stir, and the Parenting Resource Network.
