As an executive function skills specialist and coach and expert in the Chicago area on executive function skills development, I provide coaching services and workshops for all ages. In 2011, I created/authored "A Manual for Student Success: Practical strategies for how to REALLY do better in school", as well as a line of student planners. Last year, we developed an innovative online coaching tool which helps students to develop and access personalized plans and strategies on any device. I firmly believe that developing executive function skills, effective study methods, general coping strategies and the ability to self-manage and regulate are essential for both academic and non-academic success in life. My approach is largely solution-focused, and I help students identify underlying pieces and discover what actions to take and processes to employ so they can excel. My passion for coaching was born out of a desire to help students, many of whom were previously written off as lazy, unmotivated, resistant or difficult, to figure out what it takes to be successful and take action towards achieving their goals. Executive function skills coaching has been of value to my own children and this fuels my passion as I continue to create materials and strive for unique ways to provide support.
