Reserved Rebel speaks to the introverted, knowledge-seeking, experience-chasing, insight and wisdom-sharing aspect of who I am, and combines several of my interests in the following ways:
Reserved: being introverted, empathic, and mindful; an avid reader, researcher, and writer.
Rebel: being a creative, multipotentialed, life-hacking ADHDer, who dares to be different, fights to find balance, and honors who I am and what I need.
The Reserved Rebel goal: encouragement to honor your differences, embrace unconventionality, live authentically, and create a balanced life.
Whether you identify with some, or all of that, I’d love Reserved Rebel to become a community that connects like-minded people—a place to share thoughts, ideas, and suggestions on making the Reserved Rebel goal attainable for all of us!

RESERVED REBEL: HOW DISCOVERING MY MULTIPOTENTIALITY LED TO FULLY EMBRACING MY DIFFERENCES
You may have seen the words, “Reserved Rebel” in the title of this website, and wondered—what’s that?
Reserved Rebel is a term that characterizes my evolution from a practicing pediatrician—to a perpetually curious, knowledge-seeking writer, and passionate explorer of diverse interests.
It perfectly describes the essence of who I am.
KICKING OFF YOUR GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR WHEN YOU’RE A WEEK BEHIND SCHEDULE!
During the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, I came across a variety of articles detailing how to “start off the new year successfully” and social media posts sharing how people were using that time to “mindfully set their intentions and goals” for the New Year.
That process sounded idyllic.
It was exactly what I wished I were doing, but my reality was far from that relaxed and intentional goal-setting space.
Alternative Time Line
It’s basketball season!
The time of the year when I attempt to strike a balance between my introverted, slightly hermit-like normal self and the Coach’s-Wife-and-Basketball-Mom-as-Cheerleader version of myself—enthusiastically supporting my husband and children in their pursuit of all things basketball.
