Our Founders

 Conner and Kira - 600px

Conner Herman and Kira Ryan started Dream Team Baby after finding themselves completely exhausted and overwhelmed by sleep. Inspired to help other parents avoid their pitfalls, they recruited an expert advisory board to help them approach sleep issues in a safe, effective and well-rounded way. This board is still an integral part of the company today. It includes a pediatrician, neurologist, lactation consultant, nurse practitioner, psychologist, and behavioral therapist.

Conner (Founder & CEO) has an MA in English Literature from the University of Virginia, and achieved a rank of Major in the US Air Force after graduating from the USAFA. She worked in rapid troop deployment in Iraq after September 11, specializing in intelligence. She has three active young sons, Wyatt, McCoy and Everett. She and her business partner Kira Ryan founded Dream Team Baby.

Prior to launching Dream Team Baby, Kira Ryan (Founder & CMO) worked in New York City for several major corporations, specializing in strategy and research. She graduated from University of Wisconsin with a BA in journalism and is the mother of three young children, Emilia, Carter and Cece.
