I was diagnosed in 1995 at age 35 and have two adult daughters, (both with ADHD brains). I graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1982 (BS, Oceanography), became a navy pilot, deployed overseas, and became a flight instructor, all while having undiagnosed ADHD.
I live near Seattle where I swim in the sea year-round, reveling in the beauty that surrounds me. When I am not training for triathlons, learning french, or volunteering as a citizen scientist, I crochet amigurumi plants and animals.
I decided to become a coach because there is a shortage of good, well-trained, ADHD coaches. I have 105 hours of ADHD specific Life Coach training from the ADD Coach Academy and I have received their AACC designation. I am working towards getting my PAAC (Professional Association of ADHD Coaches) credential.
