Tara Youngblood is the founder and CEO of Chili’s Sleep, a company that creates award-winning technologies and apps that are changing the way the world sleeps. Their Chili Cool Mesh signature product has been used by Presidents, celebrities, and CEOs.

A leading sleep authority, Tara has given a TEDx talk on the recipe for effective sleep. In addition, she has spoken for National Sleep Foundation, Charlotte Science Museum, Wellness conferences, and Health Optimization Summit.

Tara is the sleep coach for the Cincinnati Reds and has consulted with the military and veteran groups.

Tara’s own exploration with sleep started when she lost a child and began her ten-year healing journey. Already a trained scientist with a BS in Science and Physics, Tara studied traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic practices, neuroscience, and psychology.

Among other things, she concluded that the link between sleep and mental health was essential. These insights form the basis of her work consulting with companies, keynote presentations, and technical innovations.
