I discovered that I have ADHD when I was doing my masters degree in Psychology.

 

As a child with undiagnosed ADHD I struggled with school work all the way through to university. Sport was the one place where I felt I did well, and perhaps my saving grace as it helped tame my hyperactivity and gave me a place where I felt good about myself. I was a competitive swimmer, track athlete and studied martial arts eventually teaching martial arts as a certified instructor - and being active remains a big part of my life.

I was always fascinated by the mind. I imagine I was influenced by the struggles associated with being “neuroatypical” - being wired differently to others. Human behaviour intrigued me and I completed my postgraduate studies in psychology. I specialised in neuropsychology, which I loved because it explained how the brain works and how the way we are wired influences how we think, feel and act.

 

After spending some time in academia I entered the corporate world, where I have successfully held local and global management and leadership positions for over 15 years. This was not without struggle. 

 

The experience I have gained along this journey has given me a deep understanding of the unique challenges we ADHDers facing life, relationships, and business. I am passionate about helping those who, like me live with ADHD, thrive personally and professionally.
