Dr. McMurtrie has been with San Antonio Kidney Disease Center since 2001 and currently sees patients at the Downtown Clinic and Mission Crossing Clinic.

Dr. McMurtrie is married with three kids. She enjoys trail running, cooking, and learning Spanish. She is active in local charities and believes that access to healthcare is a human right, not a privilege.

She completed postdoctoral studies with the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where she also finished her internship, residency, and fellowship programs.
