Cathy Osborne Joins Town Staff

The Town of Greeneville announces the hiring of Cathy Osborne to fill the new position of Assistant to the City Administrator.

      Osborne joined Town Hall staff on March 1, following a transition period from her current job as Director of the Greene County Health Department, according to City Administrator Todd Smith.

     “Cathy has led a critically important effort the last several months guiding Greene County through a pandemic and vaccination process,” Smith said. “While we are excited to have Cathy start making an impact with the Town of Greeneville immediately, it is also important to provide a long enough transition to keep the vital task of COVID vaccinations moving forward at the Greene County Health department.”

     As Assistant to the City Administrator, Osborne will work closely with the Town’s Finance Department and all Department Heads on special projects and programs that involve grant funding.

     Her responsibilities will include overseeing the Town’s grant administration process and implementing the Town’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) program.

     Osborne has worked as director of the Greene County Health Department since September 2019.

     Prior to her tenure with the Health Department, Osborne was Director of Operations at the Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville & Greene County, where she worked for 15 years.

     Osborne is a graduate of Chuckey-Doak High School. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services Management with a concentration in Non-Profit Administration from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She also holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health and a Master’s Certificate in Health Care Management, both from East Tennessee State University.

     Osborne is a graduate of the Town of Greeneville’s Citizens Academy and a recipient of the 40 Under Forty award from The Business Journal of Tri-Cities Tennessee/Virginia.

     She serves on the boards of the Greene County Health Council and Keep Greene Beautiful and is a member of the Greene County Anti-Drug Coalition. She also has served as a board member of the Youth Builders of Greeneville and a member of the Greeneville-Greene County Inter-Agency Council.
