About Robin Roman Wright

A Portrait of our career counselor, Robin Roman Wright

Robin Roman Wright – Career Coach residing in the Greater Boston Area, BCC, M.A. – provides career coaching and ADHD coaching privately to teens and young adults ages 15–29. She specifically targets this age group because she enjoys helping young people find their niche and launch into the world of work and business.

While she is a career coach in Boston for youth in general, she specializes in working with young people who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), whether the inattentive type or the hyperactive type. She works with a world-renowned team of professionals and now is offering coaching services to teens and young adults with ADHD in her private coaching practice. She offers customized counseling that is strengths-based and structured for her clients with ADHD. Robin works with teens and young adults to help them set goals, reach their goals, and lead productive, enjoyable lives.  She provides tools and techniques to enhance her clients’ organizational, time management and decision-making skills.  In addition, she helps students learn study skills. When providing career coaching, she helps clients identify their skills, talents and gifts.

Robin believes in using the “What Color Is Your Parachute? For Teens” process as the foundation for career counseling because—while in her twenties—she benefited greatly from using the adult version of the book.[1] Due to what she learned through that career exploration process, she has enjoyed an interesting career using her transferable skills and gifts in a variety of settings—financial services companies, non-profits, private schools and now as a career coach and business owner in Greater Boston. She likes helping young people do the self-exploration and thoughtful career planning that can start them on a rewarding career path.

Robin Roman Wright is a Board Certified Coach with specialties in Career and Executive/ Leadership Coaching from the Center for Credentialing and Education.  She is a graduate of the University of Chicago, a member of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder), a Professional Member of ACO (ADHD Coaches Organization), and belongs to the International Coaching Federation. She has been a member of the American Society for Training and Development for over 20 years. She has conducted management development workshops on leadership, diversity, time management, performance appraisal, basic supervisory skills and on-the-job training. She also led a business-school partnership for 9 years. For several of those years Robin managed over 200 volunteers working in 18 different volunteer programs. Robin received one of the Boston Private Industry Council’s Achiever Awards in 1994. One component of the partnership with a Boston middle school involved designing and launching a model school-to-career program. A few years later, Robin had the opportunity to be the Director of Multicultural Services for an independent day school and work directly with high school students.

She has presented at CHADD’s Annual International Conference on ADHD, the American Society for Training and Development’s National Conference and Exposition, the International Career Development Conference, the first annual Massachusetts School-to-Work Conference and the fourth annual National Leadership Forum on School-to-Work Transition.
