Post Grad Trainee 3
Although Katrina Weimer spent most of her life in Akron, OH with a short period in Luxembourg, she credits her college years at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV as the greatest influence on who she is today. While studying forensic biology and biology in West Virginia, Katrina recognized her calling to pursue a career in medicine. Katrina returned to Ohio to earn her medical degree from the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences. Katrina was drawn to family medicine and caring for underserved populations while volunteering at the UTCOM Community Care Free Clinic. During a summer family medicine experience, she was exposed to her newfound interest in rural healthcare. Her attraction to family medicine was confirmed when she saw firsthand the importance of hands-on full-spectrum family medicine in the lives of her patients. These experiences have led Katrina to pursue training in full-spectrum family medicine while also continuing her work in rural medicine and advocacy. In addition to playing basketball and volleyball, hiking, rock climbing, and water sports, Katrina can often be found thrifting and working on (and completing!) home improvement projects.
