Hello, my name is Katy Muller. I have been blessed with an amazing husband for the last seven years, and we have welcomed two handsome boys, Colten, seven years old, and Grady, five years old. I was born and raised right here in Paducah, Kentucky. I have worked as a registered nurse at Baptist Health Paducah, formerly known as Western Baptist Hospital, for the past 14 years, mainly in the areas of oncology, orthopedics, and neurology.
I have always been a homebody and love my hometown. I attended colleges close to home, including West Kentucky Community and Technical College, Murray State University, and most recently, the University of Southern Indiana. I completed my master's in nursing and achieved my greatest accomplishment, obtaining my family nurse practitioner license. I now serve the surrounding communities as a Baptist Health Urology Group nurse practitioner.
I enjoy every moment with my boys in my spare time, which keeps me busy on and off the ball field. When I am not at a ballfield, you will find me at the Kentucky Lake, where we love to boat and camp.
While working as an oncology nurse in the hospital, I saw firsthand that cancer does not discriminate. Cancer is all over and in all ages. I saw the physical, mental, and emotional strain it put on families day in and day out. I watched many 20 through 30-year-olds have to say goodbye to their children and loved ones, knowing I had done all I could but wishing I could do so much more. Throughout my career as an oncology nurse, I only had the opportunity to care for the adult population. Unfortunately, we do not treat pediatric cancer closer to home, and this is one of the many reasons I am dancing for gold®. Also, I hope to bring awareness to the many children battling childhood cancer in our area and surrounding areas who would benefit from care closer to home.
