I am the owner of Koaching for Kids. After years of frustration trying to understand why my kids couldn’t just be like “other” kids and why my intelligent children struggled so in school, I found the answer – ADHD. I soon realised that students could benefit from the kind of help that ADHD and academic coaching provides. Subsequently, I trained as an ADHD coach and started Koaching for Kids. In addition, I have trained in teaching social thinking skills and working with children who have dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
I have many years of experience working as a classroom paraprofessional with children who have special needs, including those on the autistic spectrum.
I am co-founder of a parent support group in Brussels called CHAOS - Children Having ADHD or Other Stuff. This group was created to help meet the needs of the parents by providing support, resources and information.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Scripps College and an MBA from Wake Forest University. I left my job as a performance auditor at the U. S. Government Accountability Office to raise my children and ultimately founded Koaching for Kids. I am a graduate in ADHD coaching from JST Coaching in the USA and Leicester University’s Specialist Coach Training Course by Dianne Zaccheo in the UK.
I currently work during the day as a paraprofessional at St. Paul’s British Primary.
