ROC Physical Therapy July 2019

JULY 2019



One of the best holidays we celebrate here in the U.S. is Independence Day. While its historical significance certainly makes it worthy of celebration, the party associated with this great day is what makes it so memorable. Fireworks, sunshine, barbecues, and swimming are just a few of the ingredients that make the Fourth of July a favorite here at ROC Physical Therapy. Because our new receptionist, Jennifer, has one of the best Independence Day traditions of anyone on our team, we decided it was a perfect time to introduce her to our readers! After spending several years working in numerous medical offices in the Folsom area, Jennifer joined our office family this March. While she has yet to celebrate her six-month “workiversary,” Jennifer says she felt at home right away. “I was originally hired for a part- time receptionist role working three days a week, but Matt and the rest of the team have slowly brought me up to full time, which has been wonderful. The change has allowed me to spend more time interacting with the patients and learning their stories, which is my absolute favorite part of the job.” Jennifer is definitely a local, as she was born in Sacramento, raised in Rescue, and graduated from Ponderosa High School. She met her husband 24 years ago and has been married for 20 years.

office, she stays busy hanging out with her husband, Mike, and their three kids, Maddy (19), Alli (16), and Tristan (12). They also have three furry family members: two Chihuahuas named Tinkerbell and Chloe, and a Yorkie named Peanut. She spends as much time as she can with her family relaxing in their backyard poolside, firing up the grill, and taking family trips. She enjoys going to all her son’s basketball, football, and baseball games. Attending big- name country music concerts with her daughters is a favorite, since Jennifer loves wearing her boots and kickin’ up the dust to some country music. The Fourth of July holds a special place in Jennifer’s heart because she is extremely patriotic. She started a fun tradition in her neighborhood: a Fourth of July parade around the block. Everyone decorates their bikes, scooters, wagons, and strollers. Her fireman husband, Captain Mike, leads the parade with a Folsom Fire Department fire truck complete with air horns, lights, and sirens. This tradition has given many fun memories and good times to her family. As her kids have gotten older, they changed up their Fourth of July tradition the last couple years with some fun vacations to Donner Lake. The city hosts a fun-filled family day on the beach with a live band, water games, and activities, all situated right there in the warm sand. Jennifer grew up going on vacations to Donner Lake and has

really enjoyed taking her family there. “It’s been amazing to see my kids enjoy Donner Lake the same way I did as a kid. Renting a cabin up there each year has made for some of the best memories of my life,” Jennifer explains. One year that stands out is when Jennifer and her family rented a cabin on the water that had its own dock. After spending the day barbecuing on the beach, they all headed back to the cabin and watched the city’s fireworks show over the water. “With some of the brightest and most impressive fireworks I’ve ever encountered, Donner Lake put on a display like no other,” says Jennifer, “and watching them cascade over the water with my family made it even better!” All of us here at ROC Physical Therapy are so excited Jennifer has joined our team. We couldn’t be happier to have her serve as the first person potential patients meet when they walk through our office doors. If you see her around, be sure to introduce yourself and ask about her family’s adventures or photos of her dogs! You won’t be sorry!
