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 have a CACP credential from the Professional Association of ADHD Coaches. To achieve that level I had to show that my coaching meets the same standards as the ICF (International Coaching Federation) while coaching through an ADHD lens. The coaching I provide is tailored specifically for the ADHD brain, providing support and information as appropriate for each client. I am a graduate of the ADD Coach Academy and also have their AACC certification.
