Working in Marion County
The best part of working in Marion County is that I don’t have to spend my life commuting. Instead, I have time to participate with clubs/boards and be close by should my children ever need me.

Living in Marion County
The best part of living in Marion County is the people. Over and over again, I have been witness to greater-than-expected generosity from community members who freely give of their time, talent, and treasure to make this a better place.

Favorite Place to Relax
Most of my time relaxing with friends takes place on someone’s porch or back patio. However, there are also many great restaurants/bars to frequent, such as Peace Tree Brewing, One Eleven, and A&P Pub.

Community Favorites
The recent library renovation, bike trail currently under expansion, various parks, including a recently built state-of-the-art skate park, upcoming middle school construction, Bravo! concert series, and inexpensive Grand theater are just a handful of the many features that show Knoxville is positioning itself for growth and is a great place to live and raise a family. Quick access to Lake Redrock and thehiking/biking/kayaking/boating opportunities found there is another amazing feature.

Career Advice to Teens
Adopt a plan early and carry it out; beyond good grades, that plan should include joiningaccounting/business clubs, one or more eventual internships, and a demonstrated commitment to volunteerism. Also, be careful to ensure that the image you project on social media is one of a mature and responsible future employee; straight As and the world’s best interview can’t cancel out a pattern of photos/comments to the contrary.
