Myers is a fellowship-trained, minimally invasive laparoscopic general surgeon specializing in breast surgery at Terre Haute Regional Hospital.

Myers received her bachelor of science in chemistry from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and completed her medical training at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She moved on to her residency in General Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center and finished at Midwestern University/St. James Hospital (now Franciscan St. James Health), both in Chicago. Afterward, Myers completed her FHS Advanced Laparoscopic Fellowship at St. Joseph Hospital in Tacoma, Washington.
