About Alex:

I'm a New Yorker, a mom, Mets fan, a yogi, and a brunch enthusiast. I also have dyslexia and ADHD. Having had the privilege of being diagnosed at 8 years old and receiving a number of resources through college I learned about the importance of having support to navigate school and college. However what I quickly realized as started in the workplace is that there are many resources for children, families, and educators with these types of disabilities and very few for adults.

After spending my career working in leadership development, I decided to start a consulting and coaching business that will help adults with learning disabilities and/or ADHD who have been struggling in their careers. My business, Cape-Able Consulting, was created to help them navigate their day-to-day workloads so that they feel supported and are able to reach their highest potential.

My biggest goal in creating Cape-Able Consulting is to change the stigma surrounding learning disabilities/ADHD by reminding people what they are cape-able of.

About Katy:

Diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 45, I've now made it my mission to help neurodivergent women learn to love their brains!

I'm the founder of Women & ADHD, LLC, and I've spent the last 7 years coaching women to change their mindset and reframe their self-concept so they can finally recognize and lean into their gifts and abilities. I'm an author & public speaker, as well as a certified holistic health coach (INHC) and a certified yoga instructor (200 hr RYT). I live in the Hudson Valley, NY, with my husband, two children, our dog, and two cats.

Before coaching, I spent 15 years as a newspaper editor & designer. I'm currently pursuing an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. 

I'm also the host of the Women & ADHD podcast, ranked among the top 0.5% of all podcasts globally.

About Carissa:

As someone without ADHD (however, this is quite questionable after all I've learned), you may be wondering how I ended up here!

I began working with the amazing Alex Gilbert at Cape-Able Consulting as her Virtual Assistant as I have a close familiarity to people with ADHD & learning disabilities and of course, love working in the online world.

Through Alex, I met the awesome Katy Weber and began working with Women & ADHD, LLC. Through my time working with Alex & Katy, and now their combined venture, I've learned so much about ADHD, learning disabilities, and the neurodivergent community. I find I have so much in common with Alex, Katy, and their colleagues, and have been having a blast!

Aside from assisting Alex & Katy, I assist other businesses and entrepreneurs online through my virtual assistant company and live in Canada!

About Abby:

I was diagnosed with ADHD in 3rd grade and worked with a tutor from then through graduating high school.  When I got to college though, I realized it was a whole different ball game.  My tutor had given me the tools to succeed but it was on me to reach out for support (which I did before even stepping foot on campus).

Throughout my time I met a ton of people who had been recently diagnosed or not even fully diagnosed with ADHD and did not have the tools or resources to help them succeed. I sat down with a number of them to help show them the ropes and connect them with the people I found most helpful.

I also created a "how to destigmatize neurodivergency" tool kit after a cousin of mine was diagnosed with autism and ADHD.  

While at Brandeis I minored in Studio Art and spent the majority of my time depicting ADHD and anxiety.¬† I am a mixed media artist (which makes sense because why focus on just one!!) and for my senior year, my focus was on this topic¬†‚ÄĒ on the frustrations of ADHD, anxiety, medications, etc. I created these pieces and dedicated so much of my attention to¬†this topic because I want people with ADHD to be able to succeed and see their differences as superpowers. ¬†

In addition to being an ambassador of The ADHD Lounge community, I work as an event producer in New York City!
