I’m a hard-working, fun-loving, say-it-like-I-see-it kinda gal. I’m also a woman living successfully with the challenges and gifts of ADD, as well as wife of 30 years to the man who truly is my “other half”. (Sorry for the “ick” factor, but it’s true!) He is as perfect a balance to me as another human could be, which is not always easy, but definitely makes each of us a better version of ourselves. He is an incredibly organized, linear, and logical Engineer, and probably the LEAST ADD person on the planet. (I swear that if you look up Attention Deficit in the dictionary, a picture of him will show up under antonyms!) He loves me unconditionally, and he respects and appreciates all of me–even the annoying parts and the parts I’m not always crazy about–and it’s definitely mutual!
I’m also mom to two amazing young people–a brilliant, funny and talented young man with ADHD, and the smartest and sweetest teenage girl you could ever meet. My kids are as different from each other as they could be, and I love watching them as they are both blossoming into responsible, caring, compassionate young adults.
In addition to being a wife, mom and successful entrepreneur, I’m also a writer, a handywoman-toolbelt-diva, owner/manager of several rental properties, and occasional singer in a rock band. Like most of my clients, I have a wide variety of talents and I wear a lot of hats, but I’ve learned to effectively manage my life and responsibilities to make the room, time and energy for what I want to do without sacrificing my business success, my relations, or my own health and sanity!
What I am definitely NOT is a great cook (or even a very good cook), a terrific housekeeper, or a top-notch filer. But I’m OK with that!
