She completed her pediatric residency training in Austin, Texas. In 2007, Dr. Lanier started Pediatric Wellness Consultants, a consulting company focused on developing and implementing community-based health, fitness and nutrition education programs for children and their families.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 just for that purpose. Her debut single, “Drink More Water,” was released in August 2010.Since that time, Dr. Lanier has had the extraordinary opportunity to explore her unique path in life and find ways to make full use of her natural gifts and talents. She was able to delve into every artistic thing she wanted to try, including taking ballet and contemporary dance classes and teaching herself to play the guitar and piano, as well as writing children, gospel/contemporary Christian and jazz songs. In addition, Dr. Lanier’s blog lends a Christian wife-mother perspective along with a background in medicine, to cover topics ranging from health & fitness, marriage & parenting, music & dance, and natural living.
