About Me

Hi! My name is Brenda Nicholson and I am An ADD Woman – maybe just like you!

About 30 years ago I realized that my young son had ADHD and ever since, I have been passionate about helping people figure out how to live their best life in celebration of their ADHD.

After all, we are the most fun. Right?

It eventually turned out that in addition to my son and myself, my husband and both daughters had ADHD as well. Things have never been dull at our house!

No matter how you struggle with your ADHD, I am sure that I can relate.

I have shown up for appointments on the wrong day (sometimes the wrong week), forgotten more than I will ever know, and then there was that time that I forgot to buy Christmas dinner.

See? I can relate. 🙂

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with your own stories or questions. I’m always here to help!
