As a young adult, Katarina fled a war-torn country, living in many places before she found herself in the United States enrolling in medical school in Florida. She soon became a family physician with a special interest in family practice. Katarina is concerned about the broken healthcare system in the U.S. and in response has become involved in health policy at the state and national levels.
Katarina is a mother of five, a board-certified family physician, and owner of a direct primary care clinic. She is the President-Elect of the Texas Chapter of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).
