Personal Information

Dr. Kremer enjoys many outdoor activities: hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, running, geocaching, adventure racing, duathlons, triathlons, and road races. If these outdoor activities take place after sunset or if her dogs can join her, that simply adds to the fun! For her, the best way to spend a day is hiking, kayaking, and hanging out at Smith Mountain Lake with family and the dogs.
