Kat Carroll

Adult with CF

Kat graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2013 with a master's degree in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (NP). Since then, she's been practicing as a critical care NP in the Nashville area. Kat has participated in several cystic fibrosis research studies. Throughout the week you can find her running, reading, enjoying walks and hikes, and eating chips and queso. She will pick up any cat she finds on the street. Her family jokingly refers to Kat and her husband as the Carroll Cat Rescue, much to her husband's chagrin. She lives in the Nashville, TN area with her husband John and, of course, their two cats.
