ABOUT ME

HEY THERE,

I’m Kami, founder of The ADHD Mommy. I’m mommy to three wonderful daughters, and at the time of writing this, I’m pregnant with my last child and the only boy. 

For years I felt stupid and like a bad mom, wife, and daughter. 

While on the surface, I wasn’t actually bad at any of those things. I have a BA in education. I’ve raised intelligent, kind, and self-aware children. All of whom are growing into the strong women I’d always imagined them to be. I have a husband who loves me for me, and parents who will drop everything for me when I ask. So, why was I feeling like a failure at everything?

Well, to sum it up and tie it in a neat little pink bow… ADHD. Everything in my life was and is a struggle. 

I didn’t get my BA until 34 years old. Not for lack of trying in my early years. I went to college straight out of high school and dropped out. I went 4 more times and quit before the last one finally stuck. 

That last time was when I’d finally figured out how to use my undiagnosed ADHD as a superpower and created a series of life-hacks that dealt with its negative side. All along, battling against something unknown. That knowledge came from a later journey.

At home, I live in a graveyard of forgotten projects, organizing systems, routines, and everything else needed to be considered a “good” mom. I had to learn to accept, we are not a normal/neurotypical family. I redefined what it meant to be a good mom and never looked back.

I still had doubts, worries, and feelings of inadequacies in every other part of my life.

I started to search for something, anything, that could explain why my life was so different than everyone else’s. That’s when I found out more about the underdiagnosis of girls/women with ADHD.

I had found my passion… Educating other mothers about a treatable disorder that could be ruining their life. Being a mom is hard, it’s harder when you have a child with ADHD, and even harder still if you AND your child have ADHD.

THAT’S WHERE I COME IN…

Here at The ADHD Mommy I’ll:

  • Provide gender-specific ADHD resources
  • Help with seeking out an accurate diagnosis
  • Healthy ways to cope with daily life struggles
  • Strategies to navigate the unique challenges related to both motherhood and ADHD. 

I have revolutionized my life, and I couldn’t be happier. Of course, I still struggle with ADHD symptoms and some days are better than others. It never ends but it does get better. I’ve learned to harness my ADHD, and I can teach you to seize control of yours too. Join me in becoming AMAZINGLY ATYPICAL!
