We Love What We Do

Our mission is a simple one: We want to help you get incredible sleep. And how you might ask? By not only conducting extensive research into the subject itself, but by personally testing out the hundreds of mattresses, pillows, blankets, sheets, and gadgets on the market that claim to improve the quality of your slumber. Founded in 2014, we aim to provide the most trusted and comprehensive sleep resource available.

The Sleepopolis team takes incredible pride in the work we do. We hope that the reviews, news, and sleep information can help you on your personal journey for better sleep. And though the job is fun – it’s not all naps! We love creating content that you enjoy, whether it’s on our site, or a video on our YouTube page. Speaking of the team…

The Team

alanna headshot

Alanna Nuñez
Head of content

Hi everyone! I'm Alanna, the head of content at Sleepopolis. I oversee the content and brand strategy and lead the team that creates best-in-class sleep health, news, and product reviews.

How I Sleep: All over the place – While I start out sleeping on my side, I often wake up to find myself sprawled out on my stomach (to the annoyance of my husband and dog!).
Pro Tip: Put your phone down or avoid screens for an hour before bed to get a better night's sleep (I know, I know, but it really works).


Bridget Chapman
Lead Reviewer

Hi, friends! I'm Bridget, a Certified Sleep Science Coach and your Lead Reviewer here at Sleepopolis. From testing mattresses to writing about various sleep health topics, my goal is to help you get a good night's sleep. You can also find me in videos on our YouTube channel!

How I Sleep: I'm a combo sleeper, switching between sleeping on my side and back. I love a soft, yet supportive mattress.
Pro Tip: Keep the bedroom dark and cool at night to help reach your deepest sleep.


Amelia Jerden
Staff Writer

Howdy! I'm Amelia and I'm a Staff Writer for Sleepopolis. My focus is reviewing sleep accessories, such as pillows, blankets, mattress toppers, and more. I love to sleep and I hope to help you all find the rights products to create your perfect sleep environment. You can find my reviews here on Sleepopolis, as well as over on our YouTube channel!
How I Sleep: Usually I'm a back sleeper, and occasionally a side sleeper! I like a mattress I can sink into a bit, but that provides lots of support.
Pro Tip: Scrolling through TikTok in bed is not conducive to good sleep! (I can admit, I'm guilty of this one.)


Carley Prendergast
Staff Writer

I'm Carley and I'm a Certified Sleep Science Coach and Staff Writer here at Sleepopolis. I write and edit mattress reviews with a main focus in editorial. When I'm not editing, you can find me crafting fun stories for our Instagram or researching the latest trends in sleep news.
How I Sleep: I’m a side sleeper with a tendency to toss and turn. I love a mattress with body-contouring memory foam, but also something with a little bounce!
Pro Tip:If you can't stand sleeping in silence, try a sound machine! Whether you like white noise or rainfall, you’ll be dozing off in no time.

Rachel Lattin

Hey there! I'm Rachel, Sleepopolis's resident Videographer. I shoot, edit, and create motion graphics for all the videos on our Youtube channel.

How I Sleep: I’m a side combo sleeper with a love for latex.
Pro Tip: Learn how to fold a fitted sheet! It's a game-changer for organizing your extra bedding.


Vanessa Osorio
Sleep Health Content Specialist, Content Marketing Associate

Hi everyone! I'm Vanessa, and I work on creating all of our sleep health content here at Sleepopolis. Sleep affects almost every system in our bodies, therefore I am constantly on the lookout for new health topics to cover from a sleep science angle. Researching the impact of sleep on every aspect of our health is one of my main focuses, and I absolutely enjoy it. Who knew sleeping on your back could significantly aid skin health!?

How I Sleep: Combination sleeper — back, side, stomach.
Pro Tip: Consistency really is key and the most important ingredient in sleep hygiene. Being consistent in my sleep/wake times and bedtime routine has done wonders for me.
