Raising a Growing Family

Living in a quiet, friendly neighborhood of Scripps Ranch since 2011, the Wimmer family is always on the go. Tim and Monika Wimmer, along with children Rowen, Arjun, Simran (Simi), and Navneen (Nina), are involved in activities like baseball, soccer, gymnastics, football, or basketball. When Tim and Monika aren’t watching the kids play sports, the family also loves jaunts to the beach and dinners out.

Tim Wimmer is an orthopedic surgeon on active duty in the U.S. Navy. They moved from Japan to San Diego with a dream to find their ideal place to land. “After doing a lot of research about San Diego communities and schools,” Monika related, “Scripps Ranch had everything we were looking for to raise our growing family!” The Wimmers are originally from the Midwest – Illinois – but they met in college at St. Louis University. Tim became a physician, while Monika’s graduate degree is in Biochemistry. She now stays home with their four children.

“Whether it be dinner at Watami Sushi or cheering on some soccer or gymnastics, the Wimmer family is loving life in Scripps Ranch.”

The four Wimmer children are very busy within their schools and activities. Rowen, age 10, is a fourth grader at E.B. Scripps Elementary. He plays competitive soccer and travel baseball, along with basketball and football. He is also a GATE student and involved in the fouth grade band. Arjun is a second grader at EBS, and he plays competitive soccer as well as baseball and basketball. Simi is a kindergartner at EBS and she enjoys Girl Scouts, soccer, softball, and gymnastics at SoCal TTC. Nina is three and a half years old and enjoys watching her siblings play sports, as well as her own involvement in gymnastics.


Monika volunteers at the kids’ school by co-chairing the school jog-a-thon and helping with room mom duties. She was a division rep for SRSC and is on the National Junior Basketball board. “I also play tennis on three different leagues at the Scripps Ranch Racquet Club,” she shared.

Whether it be dinner at Watami Sushi or cheering on some soccer or gymnastics, the Wimmer family is loving life in Scripps Ranch.
