Kasey Gregory, Co-Founder
Kasey graduated from The State University of Albany with a B.A. in Psychology and went on to receive a graduate degree in Communication Disorders from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY. She practiced as a Speech-Language Pathologist for 8 years working with both children and adults. Once she became a mother, she decided to start her new journey as a stay-at-home-mom.
When her son reached 4 months of age, he woke every 30 minutes needing the pacifier to be re-inserted throughout the night. She was cranky, sleep deprived, and knew she needed to make a change. Kasey established healthy sleep habits by decreasing her sons dependency for the pacifier, initiated an age appropriate schedule, and used gentle sleep training techniques. She couldn’t believe the improvement with her sons sleep, which then made her realize that she wanted to pursue a career with helping other families sleep better.
Kasey became a certified pediatric sleep consultant, with an additional certification of newborn sleep. She became certified with the Sleep, Baby, Sleep consultation certification program and is a member of the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants. Kasey helps families work on sleep issues their child is experiencing from newborn – 4 years old. She is confident that she will help your family succeed with teaching you how to establish healthy sleep habits that will last a lifetime. Kasey will give you confidence to implement your sleep plan with ongoing support and troubleshooting throughout the entire sleep consultation process. She would love to help your family get the proper rest you need to live happy and healthy lives.
Kasey lives in Fairfield County, CT with her husband, Richard, their son Lucas, and their dog, Riley.
Karey Arcara, Co-Founder
Karey graduated from The State University of Albany with a B.S. in Business Administration – Finance/Marketing and has an MBA from Iona College. She worked in Corporate for 10 years and decided it was not a career she was passionate about. Once she became a proud mother of two adorable and energetic boys, she knew staying home would be the greatest, the most rewarding, and the most challenging job ever.
While being a stay-at-home-mom, Karey was tired of her boys just sitting around and playing with toys. How many times can you hear a a siren make the wee woo sound or watch a train go round and round?!? She thought there must be a better way to engage her kids to learn. She did what any desperate mom would do….pin, pin, pin and pinning some more! Do you know where she’s going with this? Pinterest was her life saver. This motivated and inspired her to be the mom of many hats (shall we call this one the ‘crafty’ hat?). So she started to set up some ‘invitations to create’ for her sons and couldn’t believe how entertained they were. This was her epiphany, her calling in life. Creator of kids art & craft projects, sensory bins, and so much more!
People often told Karey how creative and inspiring her ideas were. Once her twin sister, Kasey, became a certified pediatric sleep consultant and was looking to start her own business, Karey had the idea of combining sleep and play. Getting proper rest is essential for your child’s health and well-being. At the same time, exploration is the heart of play and is crucial for your child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. This is how we came up with our business name, Discover & Dream.
Karey lives in Westchester, NY with her husband, Frank, their sons Frankie & Jaxon, and their cat, Miley.
Kasey and Karey are the dream team who are sisters dedicated to helping families sleep better. They believe a good night sleep leads to a good day of play. Their mission is to help families find the appropriate sleep and creative play solutions for your child. They look forward to embarking on this journey with you!
