Working in Marion County
I have the perfect balance between work and home. Being an entrepreneur and working in a small businesses has allowed me the flexi- bility I need to be a hands on Parent with time to coach and Volunteer. This is very important to me and I am so thankful that I have a community that supports me in this way.

Living in Marion County
I love the fact that everyone knows everyone and watches out for each other! It’s comforting to know I can go just about anywhere in town and find someone I know. Raising my children in this small community has been great, we feel safe here. Marion County Sup- plies everything I need and I rarely leave the county for anything.

Favorite Place to Relax
As a mom of 4 young kids, I don’t get out too often, but when I do I really enjoy the atmosphere at Peace Tree Brewing Company, din- ner at OneEleven or Wacko’s, and A&P Pub always has a special treat or craft/fun night going on. I also have very much enjoyed The Grand theater since it’s re-opening, that’s where we end up most weekends when we are free.

Career Opportunities
My Family has benefited from the quality education as I did growing up in Knoxville. They had a strong start at Stepping Stones Early Center, a great facility. The Knoxville School system provides diverse educational opportunities to students and sets them up for future success. I trust the Knoxville School System to take care of my children as it did for me.

Career Advice to Teens
