Jenny Stern - VP Community Service-Elect
I grew up in Rochester, NY, and graduated from M.I.T. and SUNY Medical University in Syracuse, NY. I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia, got married and worked as a physician for several years in Durham and Charlotte, NC, finally "retiring" to raise my three sons and stay busy as a volunteer in my sons' schools, the Jewish community, and Meals on Wheels in Charlotte, NC, where I lived for 22 years. I moved to Austin in 2012 with my now ex-husband and youngest son. I never dreamed I would be a Texan, but I love Austin! I am now working in a studio in East Austin, making succulent planters. Talk about a mid-life crisis! I enjoy visiting my other two sons in St. Louis and Providence, RI, as well as my parents in SW Virginia. I like to run (when it's below 90 degrees), travel, read, play cards, pick blackberries, learn about and look at art of all kinds, and hang out with my wonderful cat and dog.
