About Michelle

Intrepidi Professional Consulting founded 2013 in response to consumer demand identified as a gap in service provision. As the numbers of adults living with ADHD and learning disabilities, anxiety (mental health) continue to rise each year, coinciding with marketplace complexities many Individuals seek non-medical interventions as part of a holistic approach to treatment.

I’ve spent a couple of decades in the field working with a diverse range of adults. In direct service roles from teaching, instruction to program design in both private and public sectors. As Manitoba’s only Certified ADHD coach, meeting the challenge of dedicating one-year of Intensive coursework, peer collaboration, and oral examination to certify and to qualify as a member of ICF – the International body of Gold Standard of coaching professionals. My learning is endless and enjoyable thanks to the fascinating people I get to work with daily.

Continuing in service to hundreds of individuals developing their self-management skills for personal and professional growth. IPC offers a continuum of support at pivotal stages from gap year resources for emerging adults, to career-focused post-secondary students. Responding to the needs of trained and experienced professionals, business owners and employers of our community.

The Approach

Intrepidi Strategies for Learning specializes in coaching, skills development, and resources for individuals living with learning differences (LD) and/or attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) who seek self-awareness and new methods for personal and professional attainment.

Clarity      Precision      Simplicity 

The goal is to prepare and guide talented and often overwhelmed Individuals experiencing a disconnect between the effort exerted and the results produced.

Traits are highly Individual and situational; however, clients cite many of the following areas as frequent

  • Procrastination
  • Managing time and paperwork
  • Organizing and planning
  • Prioritizing
  • Regulating emotions
  • Setting goals
  • Building self-confidence
  • Focusing and concentration
  • Completing tasks

To enhance personal achievement through education, coaching and research, supporting individuals and organizations to maximize human potential for the benefit of all, but especially people with learning differences/disabilities and ADHD.

A world in which people living with disabilities: attention deficit disorder, learning differences have access to resources and supports to live well.

Resilience. Independence. Clarity. Perseverance. Lifelong learning.

The Philosophy

IPC is here to help you find hope in every step of your ADHD journey as you move forward in life.
