Barb Muñoz, MPP

Associate Director

Barb UAFP circle

A nearly lifelong Utahn, Barb developed a passion for healthcare advocacy at a young age. Growing up in a family that lacked health insurance, she knew how critical access to basic health care is for the safety and security of all people. Also a born communicator (you sometimes WISH she would just stop talking, already!), she worked in radio as an on-air personality before transitioning into a career in nonprofit and public service. Eventually, her interests led her to work and education pertaining to policy and advocacy for underserved populations. She obtained a B.S. in communication and a master’s in public policy, both from the University of Utah.

Barb and her husband spend an inordinate amount of time trying to entertain their two dogs, a Great Pyrenees/lab mix, Louie, and a golden retriever, Freddie. Barb also loves hiking, music, community and church engagement, and learning your life story.
