Melanie Sobocinski is an ICF-certified PCC and a MentorCoach CMC with an ADHD specialization. She loves working with graduate students and professors with ADHD, helping them build the tools needed to thrive in academia.
Melanie's journey to becoming an ADHD coach began when she found herself in need of coaching support. As a doctoral student, Melanie hired her first coach to help her navigate the dissertation process and was transformed by the coaching experience. Being coached was also an integral part of her journey through the tenure track and after getting bored with that path, Melanie launched a professional organizing business and pursued coaching credentials. During that time, she did her best to hold things together as her undiagnosed ADHD took an ever-bigger toll on her family.
Melanie identifies as a proud member of the ADHD community, parent to an ADHD++ kid, a voracious reader, recovering academic, and certified ImpactParents Sanity School® trainer. She has lived experience as a struggling academic with ADHD, and says that coaching is what helped her and her family thrive, pre- and post-diagnosis.
