That’s right! It truly is never too late to wake up!

I lived my first 32 years without realizing I have ADHD. My brain does not make enough dopamine on its own and I was given a prescription in May 1995 for a medicine that helps increase dopamine in my brain. 

I came out of a coma that day. WOW! That’s how I felt and try to describe it to others. That day in May 1995 was incredible and life-changing. Life got better, now that I was awake and I went on my way. I didn’t think much about my diagnosis and consequently didn’t talk about it either. 

Unfortunately, life was still a challenge with relationships, confidence, and employment. After 26 years on the same medicine and dosage, I got reevaluated for ADHD and received a medicine that works better for my brain. I learned that I was born with ADHD and will have it for the rest of my days. Now I felt totally awake and I have learned to manage my ADHD and be productive with the God-given gifts and talents that I have been blessed with. 

My driving desire is to help others so they don’t have to go through all the challenges I struggled through. This desire has driven me to enroll in the iACTcenter (The International ADHD Coach Training Center) so I can be a Certified ADHD Life Coach (CALC) and help make a difference in other people’s lives. 

With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work and being a Certified ADHD Life Coach, I’ve spent the majority of my life digging into new understanding, learning, and growing. As a lifelong learner, 32 years of experience in surviving from being undiagnosed with ADHD and asking myself “what’s wrong with me?”, 50+ years of experience as a Christian who believes God has more for you and me with the amazing ADHD brains that we were born with, together we can take a journey and discover some hidden treasures within you! 

If you are looking for answers to a lifetime of questions, struggling with reaching your goals and dreams, wondering if you just had more faith, feeling stuck, or just want to process everything that is swirling around in your noggin, then contacting HAPPY BRAIN 🧠 LIFE COACH is a great first step!
