Lori Sharp was raised in Knoxville and graduated from UT with a degree in Education/Kinesiology. She earned a master’s degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a concentration in Athletic Training at the University of Florida, Gainesville. She then attended Wake Forest University School of Medicine for her Physician Assistant degree.
Lori has been working exclusively with the KOC shoulder team for more than a decade. She believes that team approach allows better access, availability, and communication in caring for patients’ needs. She enjoys the opportunity to help them solve issues that cause pain or limit their activities.
Outside of work, Lori loves spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys the people, culture, food, climate, and landscape this area provides. She also enjoys doing yard work, gardening, and spending time on the water.
