In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Paul, the one who gave her that really long last name! It’s actually pretty easy to say once you hear it and it’s pronounced: ZOAL-near-check. They have a seven year old French Bulldog, Mini. One of Dr. Zolnierczyk’s favorite activities is knitting. She almost always has a project with her wherever she is and has an ever-growing collection of yarn. During the winter, Dr. Zolnierczyk embraces the snow and heads out to the mountains with her family and friends for snowboarding whenever she can. When it’s a bit warmer out, Dr. Zolnierczyk also does CrossFit type workouts in her garage gym. She also enjoys reading, Netflix binging and trying her luck at gardening.
