Beth Bardeen

Director & Co-coordinator
Beth Bardeen’s front-row seat to a 60-year field-study of undiagnosed neurodiversity in three families and the tech workplace gives her a unique perspective. Growing up, her ADHD, Dyslexia, and Autism weren’t just undetected, they were considered ‘normal’ family personality traits.
Away from home, Beth became an unwitting master in hiding her differences. After 30+ years as a Tech Industry executive and consultant, Beth was diagnosed with all three. Throughout her life she's felt the compound effects of missed support and admonishments to try harder. Now, Beth is an advocate for the newly diagnosed w/ADHD. She holds a BA in Management, Marketing and Organizational Behavior from the University of Puget Sound.

Co-coordinator & Parents’ Support
Jessica Hespelt is the owner and founder of BrainBrakes. Originally conceived to help bridge the education gap in urban schools, it has since grown to serve individuals and families globally. Jessica’s vision is to transform BrainBrakes into a non-profit that creates access to executive functioning education, coaching, and training in schools & communities traditionally without access.
With over two decades of experience working with families, Jessica brings to the table a unique fusion of skills from her training as a certified professional ADHD coach, master educator, and clinical researcher. She has actively advocated for social change throughout her professional life. She was awarded the prestigious Woodrow Wilson and Hollyhock Fellowships for her commitment to equity and social justice in education. She now serves on the ADHD Coaches Organization Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee and is also the co-coordinator for Seattle CHADD.

As a first-generation student, an advocate, and a mother of a neurodiverse child, Jessica’s empathy and insight shine through in her work. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, hiking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and board games with friends and family.
