The creative mind behind Nap Bar is Khaliah O. Guillory. As a previous C level executive, she knows a thing or two about handling stress. Nap Bar, the first white glove, self-care napping experience in Texas, offers communities and companies on-site and en suite rest sanctuary to help reduce sleep deprivation and increase productivity. Nap Bar’s mission is to turn sustainable rest into sustainable productivity for the health-conscious professionals, entrepreneurs, stay at home parents and travelers. Based on Khaliah’s philanthropy work in the community, Mayor Sylvester Turner declared October 29 as Khaliah O. Guillory Day.
