About Jennifer Koretsky

AMG Founder
Author

Senior Certified AD/HD Coach

From the time I was very young, people described me as a confident “go getter.” And while this certainly seemed true from the outside, on the inside I felt like I was barely holding everything together. Sure, I got good grades in school, landed great jobs and made a nice living. But no one knew how much I struggled on the inside. 

I was constantly stressed out, and I was incredibly critical of myself. I was never happy with what I accomplished. I always thought I could be doing more, and doing it better. Getting to work on time seemed like the greatest struggle of my life! In fact, getting anywhere on time was difficult. And sometimes I just couldn’t stop myself from day dreaming during really important meetings and conversations. 

When I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder at 25, my life suddenly made sense. I now had an explanation for why certain things were difficult for me, and why I felt so different from everyone else. 

I embraced this diagnosis, and went to work on myself.  I read every book I could find. I got therapy, coaching, and medication. And the more I learned about ADD, the more fascinated I became by the fact that there are some incredibly successful ADDers in the world! I wondered, what makes this group of people so much more successful than others? I decided to find out. 

What I found was that successful ADDers had developed a set of skills and tools that they relied on to manage their ADD. I began to develop these skills for myself. And when I one day looked in the mirror and found that I was managing my challenges and actually using my ADD to help me achieve what was really important to me, I knew that I could help others do the same.

I quit my job in corporate America and began coaching full-time in 2003. It’s the best decision I ever made. 

If my credentials are important to you, then here they are.  I am a Senior Certified AD/HD Coach and the author of Odd One Out: The Maverick's Guide to Adult ADD.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I minored in Philosophy. I also graduated from The ADD Coach Academy, and the Institute for the ADvancement of AD/HD Coaching has certified me as Senior AD/HD Coach.

I frequently volunteer for ADDA (the Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Association). I previously served as Managing Editor of ADDA's quarterly newsletter, FOCUS Magazine, and as the Chairperson for the Communications Committee.  I was honored to receive the “2006 Volunteer of the Year Award” for my work with ADDA.   

I am an Amazon.com Best Selling author and a frequent conference speaker. My work has been featured in various media including The New York Times Magazine, The Times of London, and ADDitude Magazine. Most recently, I was featured on NBC’s TODAY Show.

What I think is more important, however, if the fact that I have ADD, I’ve learned to manage it, and I’m living my dreams. If you were to ask me, I’d tell you that this is what makes me a great coach, not my credentials.

A little something extra about Jen…

I’m a rock chick. I always have and always will love rock music. I remember standing on my bed at 8 years old, holding a hairbrush for a microphone and watching myself in the mirror as I sung my heart out and pretended I was a rock star.

Now, at 35, I’m honing my skills and living that dream. My values and priorities have changed and I no longer want to be on MTV, but singing is a big part of my life. It wasn't very long ago that I deemed this dream nothing more than a fantasy.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Erin Korey

Managing Partner
Director of Operations

My background is in Marketing and Business Development. I’m really great when it comes to organizing projects and creating systems, which is a big plus for a company full of people with ADD! 

I manage the company finances, all of our ongoing projects, and in general I keep everything running smoothly. I enjoy building new relationships and fully utilizing my skills in a company that I find truly inspiring.

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

A little something extra about Erin…

Until I got to college, I had serious intentions of pursuing an acting career. I still take dance lessons and sing in a local choral group, and I hope to return to community theater when I have the time.

 
 
 

About Eva Wallace

Customer Service Assistant

I work with Jen and Erin on customer service for both AMG and the Virtual AD/HD Conference.

I think my mild ADD actually helps me juggle so many things at once because I am never at any one task long enough to get bored and distracted!

Born and raised in sunny California, I am a happy wife of 23 years and a mother of three grown (and almost grown) kids. I home-schooled all three of my children through junior high school and started my career at 36, which was the hardest thing Iíve ever done and yet, has been an incredible confidence booster! Iíve learned how to be organized, disciplined, and outgoing!

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

A little something extra about Eva …

In my spare time I like to be lazy with my family, take long walks around the lake and sell Avon.
