We are continuing our meet the Peak team series, this time focusing on Molly Van Zeeland.

Molly is one of our physical therapists here at Peak.  She graduated from Lawrence University with a Bachelor of Arts in Bio-Chemistry.  Molly’s interest in physical therapy began at Lawrence.  She served as a student athletic trainer, helping athletes rehab and return to their sports.  This, combined with her own experience as a student athlete, participating in volleyball, basketball and softball, started her on the path to her current career.  Molly went on to earn her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  She has numerous professional achievements and continuing education credits that can be found her on our website, it’s an impressive read.molly van zeeland

Molly was nice enough to take some time out her schedule to answer some questions about her favorite things she participates in outside of Peak.

What are some of the that keep you active outside of work?

“I am a mother of two young daughters ages 2 1/2 and 10 months.”

Has your workout changed since you’re occupied with two little ones at home?

“Yes, right now my daily routine consists of walking and lifting weights, but I hope to return to running this summer.”

Do you have a lot of experience with running and competitive racing?

“I have done road races of all distances including 3 marathons and several half marathons.  My true passion is triathlons, but due lack of time right now it will be a couple of years before I return to racing.”

Have you competed in a lot of triathlons?

“Yes, I have done several over the past 8 years including Sprint, Olympic, half and full Iron-man distances.”

What about watching sports, any favorites teams?

“Definitely the Green Bay Packers and of course my alma mater the Wisconsin Badgers.  I belong to an all women fantasy football league; last year I took first place, winning 6 bottles of wine!”

So is it safe to assume wine is also an interest?

“My husband and I pretend to be wine connoisseurs.  We have visited Napa the past 4 years.  We also enjoy going out for dinner paired with the perfect wine.”

Any favorite places for date night?

“Several, Chives, Rye, Bleu Al Corso and Katsu-Ya are at the top of our list.”
