I had the good fortune of being raised by a mother with well-developed executive functioning skills. She kept a daily list of To Dos, a family calendar, and a happy home that was very much in order – in spite of seven kids with seven agendas. I guess it’s no surprise that one of my favorite jobs was coordinating events where I could plan, prioritize and organize to my heart’s content.
I met Marydee Sklar, the creator of the Seeing My Time® course, in 2009. At that time, I was a web developer and built her first website, ExecutiveFunctioningSuccess.com. It wasn’t until I started to work with millennials, that I circled back and took an in-depth look at Marydee’s material. What I found was a perspective on time management, organization and planning that my clients desperately needed. So I started to include the Seeing My Time® program. As a result, my work expanded to include people of all ages.
My students are all excited, grateful and filled with hope as they learn these new skills and reducing the stress in their lives.
This fascinating journey has taken me through countless books, courses, conferences and webinars as I have jumped into the deep end of learning about the brain: How are we wired? Why do certain strategies work? What do we need to do to reduce stress and increase productivity? How does this impact our happiness quotient? Where does motivation come from? My training includes certificates of completion from both the Teaching Seeing My Time® Professional Training and Building Executive Function Skills in the Classroom and I have had the great good fortune of co-teaching a number of Family Group courses with Marydee.
Some people need help with time management; others need support with organization of papers – or thoughts and ideas. Many need tips for better planning and prioritizing. My classes are tailored to meet the needs of the individual whether it is all areas of executive functioning, just time management or something in-between.
Welcome to my world…
…where you learn about your unique and magnificent brain and we work together to build your executive functioning skills so you can continue on in the world empowered and effective. These skills can be learned at any age whether you had a mother like mine or not!
I look forward to working with you.
