Kelsey Merlo, PGY1 Pharmacy Resident

I am originally from the Chicagoland area where I received my BS in Biology/Pre-Medical at Trinity International University (Deerfield, IL) while also playing four years of college soccer. Upon graduating, I moved to Ogden, UT and earned my PharmD from the University of Utah College of Pharmacy this past May 2021. During school, I worked both at Walgreens and was the 2019-2020 Salt Lake City VA VALOR Pharmacy Intern. It was here that I learned that serving veterans and working with other strong, clinical pharmacists through residency training was my goal and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work here again!

My areas of professional interest currently include acute care, internal medicine, geriatrics, cardiology, and global health. Outside of pharmacy, my husband and I are AirBnB Superhosts and we volunteer with a medical mission team each year called Heart for Honduras. We also love traveling, skiing, yoga, hiking, and camping with our boxer dog, Stella!
