Know My Knoxville
Favorite Knoxville pastime/location? Walking trails/greenways
Favorite thing about Knoxville? Lots of amenities that are affordable and accessible.
What part of town do you live in? Oak Ridge.
Why did you choose that part of town and what makes it special? My husband works in Nashville, and we struck a compromise on our commutes, plus we were very impressed with the school system, one of the top in the state.
How long have you lived in Knoxville? Since graduating from college 30 years ago. I fell in love with my husband and the city in just a couple of months.
Favorite book…Anything by James Lee Burke and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series.
Favorite super hero…Wonder Woman, of course.
Favorite vacation…Southern Florida during the winter, the Smoky Mountains any other time.
Favorite time of day (and why)…Morning because the day is full of possibilities.
Best advice you’ve ever been given…The better planned you are, the more flexible you can be.
