Know My Knoxville
How long have you lived in Knoxville? I have lived in Knoxville for 18 years.
Favorite location in Knoxville? I love to run/walk at Lakeshore Park. The hills really give you a great workout and once you get to the top of the “terrible” hill, there is a beautiful view. It’s a nice reward.
Favorite thing about Knoxville? Knoxville has the small town feel but it still provides you will some big city things to do.
What part of town do you live in? I live in west Knoxville on Westland, behind the mall (another favorite place of mine).
Why did you choose that part of town, and what makes it special? I love all of the old trees, and l love the fact that you can get from one end of West Knoxville to the other (on Westland) and only hit three red lights – so convenient.
Favorite super hero...I love super hero movies!! My favorite super hero is Catwoman. You have to admire anyone who can pull off that outfit!
Favorite actor/actress...My favorite actress is Gwyneth Paltrow. My favorite actor is Leonardo DiCaprio.
Favorite TV show...Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Since I rarely eat all of that bad food, I like to live vicariously through Guy Fieri. I also love Nashville, I am a huge country music fan.
Favorite vacation...Atlantis in the Bahamas. It’s my favorite place on earth. The pools, casino, yummy restaurants, great shopping, beautiful water! Love it!
Favorite time of day...Sunset – wind down time. Glass of wine and yummy food time. Best time.
