Robin Finn, MPH, MA, is an ADHD warrior, spiritual seeker, mother of three, author, essayist, advocate, and coach. She spent years advocating for a twice-exceptional child before she began writing about it. Her work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, ADDitude Magazine, Disney’s Babble.com, and others. She is a SheKnows Media Parenting Expert and a TODAY Parenting Team Contributor. Robin’s education includes master’s degrees in public health from Columbia University and in spiritual psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
As an advocate, Robin has consulted with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on ADHD messaging for parents. She speaks with parents and school groups about her experience parenting 2e/ADHD kids.
As a coach, Robin draws on her background in public health and spiritual psychology. Her circuitous, decades-long journey from the halls of the New York City Department of Health to Madison Avenue PR firms to—eventually—writer and published author, make her uniquely qualified to guide others through the process of discovering and nurturing their creative ambitions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for upcoming dates for her transformational “GPS for Creatives” workshop.
As a writer, Robin’s personal essays prompted floods of emails from parents with similar struggles. Inspired by their experiences arguing with schools, contending with judgy parents and stressful marriages, and intrigued by a study linking social network sites and marital infidelity, Robin wrote her debut novel, RESTLESS IN L.A.. Robin is currently at work on a memoir in which she explores her years at an L.A. spirituality school and her subsequent transformation from mommy pariah to ADHD advocate and spiritual warrior…all the while chanting ANI-HU, shopping at Trader Joe’s, and wondering why the kids won’t eat her meatloaf.
Robin lives with her spirited family, writes, and searches for inner peace in Los Angeles (no pun intended).
