About Me

I am a professionally trained and Certified ADHD & Life Coach.  I received my certification (ACC) from the International Coach Federation (ICF), the governing body of the coaching profession, and the ADD Coach Academy (ACG & AACC), the only comprehensive ADHD coach training program accredited by the ICF.   I am a graduate of the Advanced Coaching Program of ADD Coach Academy, and JST Coach Training for Coaching Teens and College Students with ADHD.

I have been very happily married for 25 years, and have 3 terrific children (including a wonderful stepdaughter who came into my life when I met my husband over 25 years ago).  My son, who is now in college, has ADHD.  I know the challenges that a parent faces in raising a child with ADHD.  I also understand the challenges and struggles that my son has faced and the sometimes bumpy road we’ve traveled.  It is my passion to help those who face the same challenges and struggles, and make their journey an easier one.  It is also my passion to empower those with ADHD, with the skills and tools necessary to achieve their goals and reach their potential.

When I am not coaching, I love spending time with my family.  We’re an active family that loves to ski, play tennis, travel and just hang out together.  I also enjoy exercising and yoga.

I am on the Executive Board of CHADD of Nassau County (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder).  I am a member of the ICF, CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD), ACO (ADHD Coaches Organization), ADDA (Attention Deficit Disorder Association) and Long Island ADHD Professionals Consortium.
