Schrumpf and Green Present 10-Minute Rotarian Talks
September 4, 2012
By: Stephen Kent
The popular Ten Minute Rotarian
program was back with presentations by Jenna Schrumpf and Rob Green.
Leading off, Jenna talked about her life and interests. She works as Marketing Director for her family's business Dobson Health Care, which was founded by her mother in 1988. Dobson specializes in traumatic brain injury cases, catastrophic injuries, home infusion, and other home services. Jenna travels around much of the state in her job, which she loves.
Jenna went to school in the southern part of the state and was very active in soccer. Today she coaches the women's soccer at John Glen and loves it. She also runs and does other outdoor sports.
You'll find Jenna is very active in the community with service on the YWCA board, Steven's Center for Family Business, Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance, Rotary, Bay City After 6, and the Making Strides Campaign.
In her free time Jenna loves to travel and has been all over the world. She did mention "that guy" who is her steady and makes many trips with her.
Rob Green is an engineer with Wade Trim, Inc. He started there as a high school co-op his senior year and overlapped with Rotarian Ralph Knop before Ralph retired. Rob went on the Michigan Tech to get his civil engineering degree. He likes to describe himself as a typical "geek", as well as an RA in the dorm.
Needing an athletic outlet, when he wasn't a traditional jock, Rob got involved in rowing. That became a lifelong pursuit and today he coaches at the Bay City Rowing Club. He has a great group of women rowers and plans to take them to a head race in Toledo soon. He invited anyone with an interest to see him about learning to row.
Rob has taken up running, although he once said he'd only run to play soccer. He's done one half marathon. He coaches youth soccer at Freeland and Clare. He also plays hockey and soccer as well as skiing in the winter.
At Wade Trim, Rob works with the transportation and the construction departments. He was a designer of the Salzsburg Road project last year and joked that he would take the blame for any inconvenience experienced by Rotarians. He said that Midland Road between 2 and 3 mile was also courtesy of him. Then he warned the the section between 3 and 4 mile will be coming up soon.
Rob is currently working on an MBA at Davenport University, taking advantage of a Chamber of Commerce scholarship. He's the Northern Region Vice President of the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers.
