Hi! My name is Marisa Rodriguez and I am the founder of Quirky Kids, the mom to two crazies and the wife to my superhero, Jacob. We also have a whole bunch of kids that we have loved and taken care of all over the world.
I founded Quirky Kids because I was a quirky kid, and like many of the kids I have worked with, my challenges were often misunderstood. I had what I thought was ADHD, sensory issues and auditory and visual processing delays. As an adult, I began to understand and address the same underlying issues that I now help parents navigate. Through the help of Amen Clinics, I was officially undiagnosed with ADHD, properly diagnosed with moderate-to-severe anxiety and depression and treated with 2 over the counter supplements that CHANGED MY LIFE! Now that I know how my tipping points work, I have overcome ALL of my limiting challenges.
My training and experience are extensive. I have worked with extremely challenging children in 22 different countries. My husband and I have fostered and cared for many children in our own home, and I worked in the school system. I am a Certified Brain Health Coach through Amen Clinics and an Empowered to Connect Parent Trainer who’s training focused on the work of Dr. Karyn Purvis. I hold several other certificates and have completed training from other organizations including, the Mindsight Institute with Dr. Dan Siegel, Epidemic Answers, Handwriting Without Tears, CPI Nonviolent Crisis Intervention®, and I was a member and have received training from the STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder. Throughout the years I have also relied heavily upon the work of Dr. Ross Greene, author of The Explosive Child. I am mentored by and communicate regularly with professional colleagues in the field of functional medicine, psychology, public school services, ABA, Occupational and play therapy and various medicinal and holistic treatment options in pediatric nutrition, sensory integration, foster and adoption-related trauma, ADHD and anxiety in children. This year I will finish my training to become a Certified ADHD Professional (ADHD-CCSP).
