If I’d known how wonderful the ADHD brain is, and how to work with it, not against it, I could have saved myself (and my parents, teachers, partners, and work colleagues) a lot of frustration!
Yup, ADHD takes some getting used to. When I was in school, it seemed I could never pull what I needed out of my brain at the moment I needed it. I knew I was smart, but it had a weird way of showing up. It’s why I spent way too long on some projects, leaving no time at all for others. I worked really hard, I had great intentions. But I didn’t get the results I wanted, and I felt like I let everyone, including myself, down.
I work with families, kids and professionals impacted by ADHD, who desperately want to play to their strengths and potential. Because I have all this personal experience growing up with ADHD, as a parent to kids with ADHD, and through training as an ADHD coach, I bring a real ‘inside’ understanding to my work. I’m able to appreciate our unique brain wiring, and all the frustrations and the benefits of learning, parenting, and thriving with ADHD.
A true Canadian, I have lived in five provinces and one territory over the course of my lifetime. I grew up in idyllic Steveston a suburb of Richmond BC. I started my marketing career in Vancouver and ended up in Toronto working at the national level for famous restaurant brands. I moved with my husband to Moncton, NB where I worked for a marketing services agency. Then we settled back into Southern Ontario to raise our amazing kids.
I feel joy when I’m spending time with my family, friends, our dogs & horses, practicing yoga, meditation and long walks with my husband.
