Academic Coaches

I’ve enjoyed working as a Co-Facilitator and Academic Coach with The ADHD College Success Guidance Program since 2013.

With my BA in Fine Art from Pepperdine University, I bring creativity and expression to workshop participants through painting, drawing, and other mixed-media formats – all designed to help them express struggles, dreams, and goals, and provides the opportunity to see themselves in a different light.

As an Academic Coach, I utilize the workshop components in supporting students on their path to improved success in high school and college.       Knowing what they learned during the workshop, and what their plans are to be successful, I am better equipped to help them see their goals through     to the end.  I assist students in organizing, planning, and balancing their academics, social, family, and work - whatever they need to be accomplished.

I enjoy my career in helping ADHD students – they are bright, creative and intelligent young people with so much to offer. Once they harness their “superpower”, aka “ADHD” they can begin to see the success they deserve.

College-bound"Every time my mom seemed like she was disappointed in me, I used to think "you don't get it, I'm way more disappointed in myself than you will ever be."  I just didn't know what to do to make things work.  Boy, I learned concrete ways to turn the whole situation around.
