Catherine Sink, P.T., D.P.T.

Doctor of Physical Therapist


I was born and raised in Johnson City and attended Science Hill High School where I played varsity soccer, but school and work have taken me all over the country. During high school I was exposed first hand to the importance and benefits of physical therapy due to an injury I had sustained on the playing field.

In 2007 I graduated from The University of Tennessee with a degree in Exercise Science. During my time in Knoxville, I was able to work part time as a student trainer with collegiate athletes, as well as working as a physical therapy tech in a private clinic serving a general orthopedic population.

After graduation and several years of working in Knoxville as a PT tech and gaining valuable practical experience, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a Physical Therapist and began my post-graduate work at The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2010. This is a program that was started by one of the country’s foremost proponents of manual (hands-on) physical therapy. I graduated with honors in 2012 with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

I began my PT career working in an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Knoxville where I was fortunate to work with several experienced manual therapists which reinforced for me the importance of this technique. I also began to realize the importance of working with patients one-on-one to create a personalized treatment plan and the positive impact that could have on their outcomes.

After spending three years in Knoxville, my sense of adventure drew me west to Bend, Oregon. I continued to work in orthopedics during my time there, but I began to realize the need and benefit of specialized pelvic health therapy in my female patients. During my time in Oregon, I met my future husband Dane, got married, and after adventuring for a while through the Pacific Northwest, we were drawn back to East Tennessee and settled in Johnson City in October 2019. After moving home, I heard about the Pelvic Health PT practice at State of Franklin OB/GYN Specialists and I was fortunate to be offered a position with this well-respected group as of January 2020. I look forward to being a part of this team of professionals who are playing such an important role in women’s health in our region.

In our spare time Dane and I enjoy lazy days at the lake, snow skiing, traveling and spending time with our family and friends and our little dog Jefe (“the boss”). I am excited to be back home and look forward to working with and helping this amazing community.
