Dr. Katie Myrick was born and raised in Asheville, North Carolina. She received both her undergraduate degree (B.S. in biology) and her medical doctorate from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her professional interests include full-spectrum care, public health, health services research, care for Spanish-speaking populations, care for the underserved, obstetrics, pediatrics, and reproductive health. In her time outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband Wood, running (for sport or pleasure), hiking, cooking, thrift shopping, and keeping up with her family and friends. Katie chose the University of Utah because of the thoughtful community of residents and faculty that she met when she visited. During residency, she wanted to nurture her interests in pediatrics, obstetrics, reproductive health care, and care for the underserved while continuing to improve her mastery of the Spanish language. She found that she could do all of that (without having to sacrifice natural beauty or access to the outdoors) at The U!
