Kerri's Bio

During the past six years I have had the joys, heartache, fear, and achievement of learning what is ADHD and parenting a wonderful son who has been diagnosed with this difference in processing, organizing, planning, initiative, and reacting. As a family, we've had our ups and downs. Some days I feel we are handling our parenting role and school advocacy work very well...others, well I hide under the covers and feel I am failing my precious boy.

I founded the Aurora chapter with hope to give back. Our family has had help from so many wonderful individuals and organizations. As we celebrate six months of meetings - it has become clear to me that I get as much as I give with our PCMH group. Thank you to PCMH for helping me give a format for voice and purpose to my desire to share.

My time is also spent as an executive search professional, career consultant, fitness instructor, friend and reader.

“Tonight’s meeting was amazing. I learned so much. One thing that will reduce stress over homework is that I now understand that to learn you don’t have to sit at a desk quietly like I did as a student. It is okay to study laying on the floor, listening to music. I didn’t realize that. We have had so many fights over this. I feel so much better to know this. The self-care meeting was also great. I always thought it was being selfish to take care of me. I learned that it is actually important.” Diane,York Chapter at Aurora
