At Sleep Advisor, we believe a quality life starts with great sleep. The days of bragging about how few zzz’s you get are over. Self-care is more than a popular buzzword, and rest is a key ingredient. Sleep affects both your mental and physical wellbeing, and everyone deserves to feel their best, which is why we’re passionate about helping you dream with ease.
Jill Zwarensteyn is a content writer for Sleep Advisor and is enthusiastic about providing helpful and
engaging information on all things sleep and wellness.
Based in Los Angeles, she is an experienced writer and journalist who enjoys spending her free time at
the beach, hiking, reading, or exploring new places around town.

Miona started honing her skills as a web designer and developer in 2016 after realizing that economics is not her passion. She’s worked for the team since Sleep Advisor’s inception.
Sleeping is her favorite hobby. Miona finds that the benefit she appreciates most from her flexible work schedule is the ability to wake up late, as she loves to sleep in. She adores all aspects of food— cooking, preparing, and eating! She also enjoys riding her bike, exploring the city, and attending live music concerts.
Dana ensures all our content is presented beautifully on our website. As a part of the team for almost three years, she’s never stopped showing her passion for coding. Studying wellness through her role has helped improve her sleep, as she now enjoys drifting off to sleep on a perfect mattress topper, supportive pillows, and tucked under a fluffy duvet, which allows her to wake up refreshed.
When she’s not coding, she likes to take long walks with her Frenchie, bake raw cakes, and take Latin dance classes.
Dragan is in charge of enhancing our website so that it’s easily accessible to our readers.
Dragan very much respects his body; however, under no circumstance is he willing to allow his mattress to adjust to his well-shaped figure for the necessary 8 hours of sleep, which his mind desperately craves— he’s an extra-firm mattress kinda guy.
Legend has it, he once slept on a rock, and he didn’t even mind as long as he could get some sleep. In his spare time, he likes playing drums, watching independent European cinema, reading French comics, and frequenting music festivals— where he might have another chance to find a rock to lay his head on and drift peacefully into dreamland.
Marijana got into web design and development in 2015, finding it a perfect field for expressing her creativity. Her skills have grown alongside the site's success, and she recently became a part of the Content Team.
When it comes to sleeping, she likes to quote Michael Scott from the Office, “I'm an early bird, and I'm a night owl. So I'm wise, and I have worms”.
This early bird has freed herself from a morning alarm during the last year, easily waking up before 7 am, but this “night owl” falls asleep during every movie’s opening credits. In her spare time, she likes to read, practice yoga, and hang out with friends.
Check Your Ego
We take a progressive approach, and there is no traditional hierarchy. Suggestions for improvement flow up as often as they run down because everyone’s voice is equally valued.
Challenging the way things are done or pointing out something wrong is hard, but it’s crucial to speak up, or we end up resting on our laurels. The truth can be brutal, but pushing through is where growth begins.
The sleep industry changes constantly. If we aren’t consistently gathering the latest data or challenging our sources, our information can quickly become obsolete. Further, we value education, and whether that’s attending a sleep course or participating in our team book club, it’s critical to keep learning.
There are no silly questions— you can’t satisfy curiosity without a query.
If you don’t know, ask, we’re all ears.
We are committed to being upfront and transparent about our policies. More information about how we evaluate products and run our site can be found here, along with our disclosures and disclaimers.
It’s critical to keep in mind that while we do extensive research and testing, we are not doctors, and no advice we offer could take the place of a medical professional. We hope you’ll use our findings as a platform for your own research and questions you might ask at your next doctor visit.
