Good Morning Everyone! Today we get to meet Molly, our Book Club Officer, and Allie, our Play Group Officer. Take it away Ladies!
Hello! I'm Molly Daniel and I am the Book Club chair. My husband Jared is in his fifth year of Orthopeadic residency...we are down to only 10.5 months left! I've been in Medical Partners since the first summer we moved here and I couldn't be more grateful for this group. Jared and I just celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary. We have three girls: Madison (13), Claire (10) and Abigail (2.5). We both grew up on a farm in NW Iowa and met in high school. We graduated from high school, got married and went off to college with Madison all in the same summer. We spent eight years in South Dakota for under-grad and med school. My degree is in Advertising and I worked for four years in an advertising agency as a media buyer. I'm currently a stay-at-home mom and I do part-time daycare. I LOVE to cook. I LOVE to eat. I just really LOVE food. After residency we are off to Toronto, Canada for his fellowship in Pediatric Orthopeadics, yep Canada! We are hoping to settle in the Midwest as our parents are going to farm until they die. We feel so blessed to be here at the U and hope you love it as much as we have!
Hi! I am Allie Hart Buckwalter and this is my second year as the play group chairperson. My husband, Jody, is in his fourth year of Orthopaedic residency. My husband grew up in Iowa City, and his parents and many childhood friends still live here. I grew up in Southern California, attended Duke University for undergrad, went to Northwestern for law school, and practiced law in San Diego for four years before deciding to stay at home with my kids. We now have three children: Joseph is five, Levi is almost three and Isla is four months old. IMP has been a great resource for entertaining the kids through the childrens' activities and play groups. I organize two play groups a month, and usually we meet at parks, splash pads, libraries, indoor play areas and rec centers. As the weather gets colder, I will also plan some play groups at members' homes. Please let me know if you are willing to host a play group. I look forward to meeting more of you and your families this year!
Thank you guys for all that you do. I know that Molly and Allie try really hard to switch up days and times every month so that everyone has a chance to make it to the events. Go check them out and have some fun if you can!
