As an Iowa native, Dr. Jacob loves traveling to experience the hidden gems of our state. She enjoys meeting new people and hearing their stories through traveling. One of her favorite things as a Family Medicine doctor is hearing the stories of her patients. She loves being able to get to know families, from babies to grandparents, and everything in between. At work, Dr. Jacob works closely with medical students and residents and is passionate about educating her patients on their health journey as well as teaching both medical students and residents. Outside of work she loves to go camping with her husband, three kids and their dog, Winnie. As a family they enjoy fishing, 4-wheeling and anything the great Iowa outdoors has to offer!
