Today we get to hear from the fun girls that run the Children's Activities, Jennifer Ring and Kathleen Linz.
Hi all! I’m Jennifer, and I am co-chair of the Children’s Activities. This is my fifth year being a part of IMP and it just keeps getting better! I am currently a stay at home mom. I have my Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy and am a certified ballet instructor through the Cecchetti Council of America. I hope to return to these fields once residency is over and we are closer to family. My husband Dave is a fifth year general surgery resident and this will be our last year in Iowa- I will definitely miss it here! My husband and I are originally from South Dakota, and we will be returning next year so my husband can start his “real” job as a general surgeon. We have one daughter (with another on the way!) and one dog. We love hiking and biking and spending time outdoors. Sugar Bottom and Kent Park are a couple of our faves if you are looking for a close place to hike. I feel so lucky that Iowa has such an awesome network of people to connect with and honored to have been able to serve IMP as an office for the past year. It is all the members (you!) that make it so great!
Hi guys! My name is Kathleen Linz. My husband Luke is in his second year of his Anesthesiology residency. We are both originally from Cincinnati, Ohio but lived in Michigan fwhile he attended medical school at Michigan State University. This is my first year as one of the children's officers for medical partners. I worked for six years as a Physical Therapist Assistant but have been a stay-at-home mom since we moved to Iowa a little over a year ago. We have three children: Miles is 4, Audrey is 2 and Leo is 9 months. We feel so lucky to be doing residency here! This is a really great area for young families and there's no shortage of things to keep me busy with the kids. We know we want to move back to Cincinnati in a few years when Luke finishes residency but I already know I'm going to really miss Iowa. I had no idea what to expect when we moved here last year so please come to me with any questions and I will do my best to answer them for you! We really love it here and I hope you will too!
Thank you Ladies for all of your hard work on the activities. I know my kids have a blast at them!
