Teresa Starke, P.A.-C
Teresa Starke joined Pinnacle Family Medicine in June 2016. Teresa grew up in a rural town an hour west of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. She completed her undergraduate degree in ACS Neurochemistry at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. After graduating, Teresa spent a year working and researching with DNA, protein, and antibodies for FDA approved medications and research. Teresa and her husband, Mike, decided to move down to Knoxville, TN to attend graduate school, because of the great weather and even warmer people. Teresa graduated from South College with a Masters of Health Science and went on to become a licensed Physician Assistant in 2015. Teresa has previously worked at a Dermatology Clinic in Knoxville prior to coming to Pinnacle Family Medicine. Teresa and her family moved to the Johnson City area after her husband accepted a position with the ETSU basketball team.
Teresa really enjoys talking and getting to know her patients, besides providing up-to-date and seamless medical care. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her daughter, Kinsley. All other time is spent baking, working-out (mostly Crossfit), reading, gardening, playing the piano, and attending ETSU basketball games (Go Bucs!).
