Dr. Schmitz is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
I’ve been a pediatric hospitalist at the UIHC since July 2019. Prior to that I worked at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. I went to college and medical school at the University of Iowa so I was excited for the opportunity to come back home. My husband, Mike, is also an Iowa native.
I enjoy being active outdoors, running and biking. I’ve been working on expanding our plant collection and have recently learned how to crochet to keep me busy for the winter.
My favorite restaurant is Oasis, I could eat there every day.
I love the Hawkeyes of course, but I also love the Milwaukee Bucks and Green Bay Packers.
Fun fact: I was part of a 6-time intramural flag football championship team while in school at the University of Iowa.
