Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.
Jennifer Tscholl, MD
My Current Job/Company:
Child Abuse Pediatrician/Nationwide Children’s Hospital
Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics/The Ohio State University College of Medicine
I work with a multidisciplinary team to diagnose and treat children who are suspected of victims of any type of child maltreatment. This occurs in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. I spend part of my clinical time working in a foster care clinic. I also am involved in the education of medical trainees, including fellows, residents, and medical students.
My family, my work, and my fun time to decompress.
Brian (husband), daughter Zoe (6), daughter Amelia (3), and son Ozzie (14-months).
My Hero or Heroes:
My parents who have been unwavering supporters and role models for marriage, parenting, and going after your dreams.
Any getaway with my husband (preferably without kids!) is a great way for me to refocus, even if it is just a day date. I also cherish time away with my girlfriends, particularly my close-knit college crew.
My Pet Peeve:
Great food! And dirty martinis…
Hard-working, honest, family-focused.
Bright, busy, and full of possibilities.
My Favorite Quote:
I can’t say I have any one true favorite, but as an educator and lifelong learner, I do like this one…
“Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
My advice to Young Women:
Do not let anyone tell you what you can’t do.
How I Balance it All:
I’m still figuring it out… But I have realized how much priorities shift through the different stages of my life thus far. My 20-year old self never could have envisioned the balancing act of my current self. It has been a learning experience to be ok with changing goals, but still recognizing that goals need to be set to achieve any growth.
