From the outside I had it all. I was an accomplished competitive swimmer, a US Naval Academy graduate and forward-deployed helicopter pilot who was managing teams of sailors much older than I.
I live near Seattle where I swim in the sea year-round, take part in citizen scientist projects supporting marine science and other environmental projects. My relaxation activities include dancing, swimming with friends, and crocheting amigurumi plants and animals.
I have a CACP credential from the Professional Association of ADHD Coaches* and an AACC certification from the well-respected ADD Coach Academy.
*To achieve the CACP I had to show that my coaching meets the same standards as the ICF (International Coaching Federation) while providing coaching that is tailored specifically for each person's unique ADHD brain.
