      Hi Keira,

      I worked originally with people with learning disabilities and autism, and I really wanted to help develop the research in this area. As I progressed I realised sleep was integral to mental health and that certain populations had more issues with sleep than others. I then experienced a difficult time in my life when my sleep was completely changed, and it impacted me negatively. So from then I wanted to spread the word of how important sleep can be and help as many people as I can!
