"Being human is not about being any one particular way; it is about being as life creates you—with your own particular strengths and weaknesses, gifts and challenges, quirks and oddities."

— Kristin Neff

Why I Became an ADHD coach for women with ADHD

 

Near the end of 2019, I left my role as an HR Director for a large restaurant company with close to 1000 people.  In the last years working there, I noticed that things were more challenging for me.  Of course, I hid that from everyone by staying late most days to keep up.  Even so, I knew that people around me were noticing as I'd forget names, make silly errors, or struggle to find the right words.  It was horrifying.



Fortunately, a year later, while on a Covid walk, I was listening to a podcast where the guest speaker, Shaun Roney, was being interviewed about her work with women and ADHD.  Frankly, I wasn't interested and almost turned it off because I didn't know anyone who had it-let alone me.  

 

I was SO WRONG!  When Shaun listed how ADHD shows up in women, my mouth dropped open.  I remember exactly where I was when I heard it.  After listening to the show at least a half dozen more times to confirm and taking every assessment I could find online, I scheduled time with a psychiatrist who confirmed it.

 

So, at the age of 51, I learned about women and ADHD, was diagnosed, and began to feel so much better about my life as I looked at it through this new lens. By my next birthday, I was enrolled in specialized ADHD coach training to add to my current coach certifications.

 

I wish I had known about my ADHD earlier.  It would have made a world of difference in how I showed up in my adult life.  College would have been easier and honestly, my whole life would have been more understandable.  Most importantly, I wouldn't have felt so alone, and my self-esteem wouldn't have been as battered.

 

I don't want others to have to walk this path alone.  In my practice, I weave together my experience in HR  (managing ADHD at work), building healthy habits that scale to routines (Tiny Habits), and my work as a mindset coach and Dare to Lead™ facilitator to support professionals like you to thrive, not just survive.

If you're ready to embrace your ADHD and make changes to improve your life, give me a call.  I'd love to partner with you!
