Get to Know: Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Knapp
This month, we showcase another familiar face at Clinic Sofia. Nurse practitioner Jennifer Knapp has been at Clinic Sofia for more than eight years and tends to come in contact with most patients at some point during their pregnancies or annual visits. With her constant smile and friendly demeanor, Jennifer exudes a passion for women’s healthcare that brings Clinic Sofia’s mission to life. Here are some fun facts about Jennifer. Family:I have two kids, a daughter who is six and a son who is eight. My husband and I met in college at the University of Iowa even though we actually went to the same high school in Iowa. What do you like best about being a mother? One of the best things is watching my kids develop, seeing them grow and their unique personalities develop. They are so different! What things do you enjoying doing outside of work? I like to be active and enjoy working out, running and yoga. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, whether it is traveling, doing outdoor activities or simply eating dinner together.
Favorite travel destination? Hawaii (we honeymooned there) or the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Our family also loves to visit Bluefin Bay in northern Minnesota. What do you like about the Twin Cities? I like living in an area that has a metropolitan feel yet it is still very family-oriented with smaller communities. Any best-kept secret places you and your family enjoy in the Twin Cities? We spend a lot of time at Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan where we go hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing. It is a beautiful park with trails and lakes to enjoy year-round. Something you may not know about me… I am originally from Iowa but moved to the Twin Cities to get my master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Minnesota before coming to work at Clinic Sofia.
