Dr. Park is from Augusta, GA. She went to Georgia Tech in Hotlanta (Fight! Win! Drink! Get Naked!), and then back home for med school. Cat loves reality TV shows, crossfit, and traveling. Her life goals are to be on Survivor or Amazing Race, and try all of the Top Chef restaurants in the U.S. She can’t wait to come to Memphis and make new friends, find a crossfit gym, find a church, and try all of Memphis’ great food! If you’re looking for someone to play board games (Settlers), card games or Scramble with Friends with then she’s your girl!
