Working to make a difference in the lives of others is one of the most rewarding endeavors a person can take on. One of those individuals in particular, who is constantly striving to better the lives of others, is Brooke Schnittman. Brooke works as an Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Executive Function Coach for individuals of all ages. Eleven percent of children in the United States are diagnosed with ADHD. Brooke uses her understanding of the struggles faced by those with ADHD to support and enrich the lives of individuals who manage this condition on a daily basis.
Growing up in Melville, Long Island, Brooke has always been surrounded by a family of educators who has shown her how rewarding it is to give back to others. Because of this, the decision to pursue a degree in Special Education was an easy one for Brooke. She attended Penn State University for her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and then received her Master’s degree in Teaching Students with Disabilities from New York University (NYU). After graduating from NYU, Brooke went on to work as a Special Education teacher in the Jericho School District in NY. After teaching for eight years, she became a school administrator, where she worked closely with families, staff, and students to support students with special needs. Brooke has been in the field of Special Education for a total of 13 years. Two years ago, Brooke decided to move to Boca Raton to be closer to her family and developed her coaching business. Now, through her business, “Coaching With Brooke,” she supports individuals with items such as organizing their daily tasks and improving their focus. Brooke explains, “I absolutely love it! I feel connected to my clients and I am seeing a huge growth in the lives of the children and adults I work with.”
