Meet Dr. Schreiber
1. What made you want to become a pediatrician?
I have always loved being around children, but when I was in medical school I didn't know how I would feel around children who were sick and in the hospital. On my pediatric rotation, I learned that despite being sick, children are resilient and that I wanted to be someone who could help children get better when they are sick and keep them growing and developing to their fullest when they are healthy.
2. What would you be doing if you weren't a doctor?
I would probably be a teacher. In high school at Catholic Memorial, I was voted "most likely to be a CMH teacher."
3. What's one thing you'd like to tell parents about keeping their children healthy?
Make sure your child gets enough sleep. Starting from infancy through adolescence, getting enough sleep is vital to a child's growth and development.
4. Who's the most famous person you've ever met?
Can I pick two, please? My Catholic faith and my support of Marquette University are both very important to me. I was able to meet Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York when he was Archbishop of Milwaukee. When my son was an infant, he carried him around our church when he came for a visit. For my Marquette ties, Coach Al McGuire is another famous person I was able to meet and know when I was growing up.
5. What is your favorite vacation spot, and why?
For the last 25-plus years, my family has vacationed in northern Minnesota at a resort for the same two weeks every July. As a child, I went with my family and now I love getting to share the tradition with my husband and four children as we get to stay in our own cabin. We love to swim, fish, play games and spend time with extended family and friends without the distractions of emails and phone calls.
