About Jennifer Masche

My name is Jennifer Lynn Masche. I am 35 years old and live in Destin, Florida.  I am a physician’s assistant and I work at Sacred Heart Hospital in the emergency room.  I work four days a week and on my off days I like to take the family to the beach.  A few weeks ago, we added a new member to our family – a rescue dog we named Lucy.  She is tinier than our dog Luke and the two of them get along great.   I’m really happy that Luke has company when we leave the house.

I graduated with my undergraduate degree at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas (go Horned Frogs!), and graduated from Midwestern University with my master's in medical science and physician’s assistant studies. Praise the lord I no longer attend school! My first job as a PA was in Arlington, Texas, for a wonderful internal medical doctor. While I was working there, a couple that I grew up with contacted me and the husband asked if I would e-mail his friend Bryan Masche. Bryan and his best friend Mike Fields were both in the U.S. Air Force and were stationed overseas in Kuwait at the beginning of the Iraq War. I first received an e-mail from Bryan in late January, met Bryan face-to-face Memorial Day weekend 2003, got engaged Labor Day weekend 2003, and married January 2, 2004. We had three years of bliss and then our lives changed forever June 11, 2007, when our six amazing, precious, healthy babies were born in Phoenix, Arizona. The best day of my life!

Lately, my hobbies include spending time with good friends, traveling, running, reading, spending time with the kids and dates with my husband. The first time I appeared on TV is when Bryan asked me to marry him on national television at an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game. We also appeared on TV early in my pregnancy on the Today Show. Fun facts: My lifelong dream is to be a medical missionary in Central or South America. I have visited many countries including Haiti, Guatemala, Spain and Costa Rica. Bryan and I toured Italy and our absolute favorite vacations include going to the beach—anywhere! We joked before we had our children that we wanted a whole baseball team; we got a basketball team.
