Well, it might surprise you to learn while I am able to talk and write about others, I’m not very good in talking or writing about myself. Here are some basics: while I’ve lived in Tennessee almost my entire life, I did venture out and lived in North Carolina briefly. BIG mistake and I hated it!
I grew up in Fountain City, about two miles behind the famous duck pond and Fountain City Park. I enjoyed ice cream every Friday at the Creamery (YUM!) and I’ve had the same best friend since I was in the 7th grade.
I’m just your average girl, I was your typical Baptist girl who attended high school just knowing I was going to end up on Broadway singing at the top of my lungs. That dream came true, unfortunately, it was the wrong Broadway and my musicales drew unwanted attention from the ever-growing homeless population. I didn’t make it much past the duck pond and New York City remained a dream. I had to settled for attending Pellissippi State, where I majored in music and I can still remember being told I’d never find a job in Knoxville teaching music.
I’ve worked since I was 14 and love to work. I’ve done a little bit of everything and quickly became interested in politics after having worked in a few campaigns. While we’ll touch on politics and campaigns in this blog, I’ll offer up a few other topics and things of interest, as I am deeply interested in Knoxville and Knox County.
I’ve been surprised to learn that the little things are what usually make life worth living and recognizing that allows a person to smile and fall in love with something (or perhaps someone).
