More About Jeanette D.

ADHD and Executive Function Coach

Hi!  I’m Jeanette and I believe in making progress, not perfection.  I am a die hard New York Yankees fan, and I play tennis almost every day!  I also love to read and am a competition cheer coach!  I participated in gymnastics and cheer through college and love sports.  I’ve traveled to Costa Rica, the Caribbean, England, Ireland, and the Dominican Republic. I’ve lived all over the US – Texas, Florida, Maine, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and currently in Georgia!  I love spending time with family including my son who is a wrestler and my Italian Mastiff, Pepper who is bigger than I am!


I was raised by my grandmother, and we were called the dynamic-duo! I was an only child until I was 30 years old when I learned of my 5 brothers and sisters after moving from New Jersey to Georgia.  I am the first person in my family to graduate college and I was president of my sorority in college.  I was also a Spanish teacher and can speak it fluently!


I can relate to almost anyone.  I love to listen, understand, and make progress. Our society tends to focus on what’s going wrong. I love extracting each students’ gifts and ‘the good stuff’ without over helping.  My son has inattentive ADHD, which forced me to explore some of my own ADHD struggles. Turns out I can remember signs since I was 10 years old!  Before ADHD and Executive Function were household names, I had to devise strategies and coping mechanisms to progress and achieve my goals.  I used to make my own planner to suit my needs–lots of details and to do lists.  We’ll use resets, reflection, and planning to create success and peace in the classroom and beyond!  Most often it is the small changes that lead to big results!
