Carol’s Experience & Education
She began working with ADHD and children with special needs immediately upon graduating with a Master’s Degree. After spending almost 30 years in education, she decided to embark on a new career.
She enrolled in a coaching program at Coach U, the first of its kind in the country started by the founder of coaching, Thomas Leonard. Shortly after graduating from Coach U and earning their certification, she completed a graduate coaching program with the Newfield Network in Minneapolis, MN and an Executive Coach Training Program with Success Dynamics in Concord, MA. Since then she has become a highly sought after professional coach.
Carol has a passion for public speaking and connecting to every member of the audience with understanding and compassion. She continues to explore better and more effective ways to assist a diverse group of people. As a result, she has accumulated a number of healing methods and cognitive strategies to help people transform their lives within shorter time frames.
As a public speaker, she gives keynote speeches, runs workshops and conducts breakout seminars. Recently she toured New England speaking to Parent Advisory Councils about gearing ADHD students toward success. Her presentations are available as teleseminars and downloadable ebooks.
Carol often facilitates the creation of healthy communication patterns and supportive group dynamics for businesses as well as families. Every day she strives to provide clients with the tools they need to lead orderly, happy lives in the classroom, office and home.

Carol’s ADHD Mission
She has been privileged to work with so many wonderful people of all ages and backgrounds who fit a certain profile referred to as ADHD. Her most important mission is to bring the truth to light about the real nature of so-called ADHD. Throughout time, people with this brain type have been many of our most important innovators. A wealth of experience has shown that this often maligned and stigmatized brain type is more the brain type of innovators than misfits.
She works to change the negative way people view the ADHD trait. ADHD is not a “disorder,” but rather a cluster of valuable assets that when managed correctly can create big results. ADHDers have fine company in innovators like Einstein, Mozart, the Wright Brothers, Winston Churchill and and Henry Ford.
