Dr Kathy O’Mara joined Willowcreek Pediatrics in 2001. Her training was at Temple University School of Medicine and St Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, where she was born and raised. The mountain life drew she and her husband, Doug, to Utah in 1996. They have 2 adopted sons .

Spurred by decades of watching children become increasingly chronically ill, Kathy has developed a special interest in pediatric weight management, lifestyle medicine and sports nutrition. She is the player safety coach for Brighton Ute Conference youth football league.

She is currently training in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine run by the Cleveland Clinics. She is also planning a course in herbal medicine to complement her traditional training. The focus on lifestyle medicine has reinvigorated her love for pediatrics as she strives to help her patients grow up healthy.
