About Me

Katee was born in San Diego, CA. She has visited and lived around the world including Qatar and Hong Kong. Her travels and peers have always inspired an interest for her in engineering and healthcare. She chose to attend the University of Utah and pursue a BS/MS dual degree from its Biomedical Engineering program. Since her freshman year, Katee has been an active student researcher within the University of Utah community; starting at the Huntsman Cancer Institute under Nicola Camp, PhD, and now the Orthopedic Research Laboratory under Amy Lenz, PhD. She's also completed an internship as a Regulatory Affairs specialist for Varex Imaging Inc. She hopes to learn from her mentors to also become a leading woman in research and biomedical devices . Katee is currently working on a non-thesis validation project for imaging systems under Dr. Lenz, continuing her research thanks to the LS Peery Scholar Award.
