Dayo Lanier, M.D. (affectionately known as Dr. Dayo to the students she’s worked with) is a pediatrician, turned writer, consultant, speaker, singer-songwriter, life-long learner and Founder/Owner of Dr. Dayo Lanier | Reserved Rebel.

Dr. Lanier is a graduate of Cornell University and received her medical degree from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.

In 2007, Dr. Lanier founded Pediatric Wellness Consultants, which focused on developing and implementing community-based health, fitness and nutrition education programs for children and their families, primarily in pre-schools, elementary schools and churches.

Soon after, Dr. Lanier began writing and recording children’s songs which encouraged exercise and dance, inspired healthy eating and promoted self-confidence through lyrics geared for that purpose. Her debut single, “Drink More Water,” was released in August 2010.

Since then, diagnoses of ADHD x 3 in her family shifted her focus to what could only be described as a “personal, scientific study” of parenting and family life with ADHD and its intersection with introversion and career change.

On her website, (drdayolanier.com), Dr. Lanier lends her introverted, ADHD, multipotentialite, Coach’s wife, Christian/Sports Mom, Arts & Science perspective and background in medicine, to offer encouragement, insights and information on a variety of topics—ranging from health & wellness, creativity & music, education, parenting and self-development.

Dr. Lanier’s Reserved Rebel platform is deeply rooted in her introverted, knowledge-seeking, experience-chasing, insight and wisdom-sharing approach. Her overall focus: encouraging others to honor their differences, embrace unconventionality, live authentically, and to create a balanced life.

Dr. Lanier lives in Dallas, Texas (transplanted from Atlanta, Georgia) with her husband, Coach Rob Lanier and is excited to have their two college-aged children nearby.

    1. When you were a little girl, I knew you would do great things, be community-minded and bring joy to your Mom’s heart. Marilyn was my best friend when I lived in Buffalo. It’s my fault, but I’ve lost touch with her. Her birthday was this week. When you speak to her tell her Happy Belated Birthday.
