Hi, I’m Sarah Dopp! I’m passionate about mental health, technology, and supporting the LGBTQ+ queer community.
I’m known for creating Queer ADHD, an ADHD coaching practice and resource center, which operated until August 2022. If you’re looking for similar resources, I encourage you to check out NeuroQueer.org.
I’ve also been creating on the Internet for over 20 years. You can find my recent long-form writing under Queer ADHD Articles and on Medium. For social media content, you’ll find me under @sarahdoppify on Instagram and TikTok.

Prior to ADHD Coaching, I focused on…
Online Community Creation & Management
In 2001, I evolved an online literary magazine (The Writ) into a web-based writing workshop that served 5,000 people. In 2007, I expanded my photo blog about gender diversity (Genderfork) into an active community expression project with a staff of volunteers. My fascination with developing healthy online communities led to a blog (Culture Conductor) about these principles, and jobs with Riverbed, SuperBetter, and Wikia Fandom to nurture their communities.
Web Product & Project Management
Web development projects are my career-long love affair. I have contributed to them as team manager, product manager, project manager, and front-end developer. My employers and clients include CBS Interactive (CNET, CBS News, TV Guide), Callisto Media, Cisco, Jiffy Lube, and BlogHer, among others. I’ve spent as much time improving employee-facing web apps and as I have creating public websites. For me, this work is an endless source of creativity and inspiration.
Writing, Speaking, and Facilitation
My early love for creative writing performance led me to join a college poetry slam team and then later co-host San Francisco’s Queer Open Mic. I was also an avid blogger from 1998 to 2011, and have created an embarrassing number of personal blogs. From there, I found my passion for public speaking at colleges and conferences with a focus on technology and social issues. I find deep purpose and joy in crafting messages, engaging audiences, and guiding change.
