My name is Katherine Sylvester and I firmly believe that “all things are possible to him who believes that all things are possible (Mark 9: 23).” The validity of this truth is hard to imagine when you sustain a stroke, brain trauma or spinal cord injury or experience any other life-altering occurrence. For the first five years of my career, I committed my life to helping my patients with neurological damage look beyond their current predicament and into the realm of endless possibility while physically challenging their bodies so that improvement was inevitable.
After giving birth to my good and perfect gift, I became equally passionate about helping mothers rediscover who they were physically, emotionally, socially and intimately before they had children. Through education, edification and a higher level of expectation, I give women permission to redefine motherhood and debunk the myth that childbirth means wearing pads, losing abs, energy deprivation and stiletto-wearing cessation.
Whether the goal is prevention, recovery, fitness or wellness, my ambition is to equip everyone entrusted to my care with the tools necessary to thrive throughout their lifetime.
When I am not working, I enjoy traveling with my husband, outdoor exploring with my son, loving on my friends and family, volunteering and providing education in the community, mentoring PT students and young women, writing poetry and eating frozen yogurt.
My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and psychology from Mercer University and a doctorate in physical therapy from the Medical College of Georgia.
