Dr. Miranda Crouch was born and raised in Jamestown, TN, a small town nestled within the beautiful Cumberland Plateau. She completed her undergraduate studies in Microbiology at the University of Tennessee (GO VOLS!). After her undergraduate studies, she completed a 6 month internship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory where she worked with microbial ecologists to further understand the influence of microorganisms on biogeochemical cycles in soils and sediments. Given her enjoyment of research and discovery, she moved to Greenville, NC where she completed her PhD in Biochemistry at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Her thesis work focused on improving the humoral immune response in obesity through modulation of omega-3 fatty acid lipid mediators.

While she enjoyed research, she continued to actively work with vulnerable and underserved populations throughout her time in graduate school, which further revealed the impact of social determinants on the overall health and well-being of individuals and the community. This led her to attend medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she was a clinic leader for a student-led rural clinic in Eastern NC. This experience along with her rural upbringing solidified her desire to serve underserved, rural communities as a family physician.

Miranda is super excited to join the Full Circle Health family as a resident physician. Her interests within medicine include rural medicine, addiction medicine, nutrition, women’s health, sports medicine, and preventative medicine (to name a few). She also looks forward to exploring the beautiful state of Idaho! Outside of medicine, Miranda enjoys landscape photography, hiking, travel, trying out new cooking recipes, spending time with loved ones, and wearing TN orange most days of the year while she cheers on her VOLS.
