Know My Knoxville
Favorite Knoxville location? I have recently discovered the Urban Wilderness just south of downtown Knoxville. I can’t believe I’ve lived in Knoxville for the last seven years and only went there for the first time this spring! I’ve been having a lot of fun mountain biking and exploring all the trails.
Favorite thing about Knoxville? A UT football game on a crisp fall afternoon.
What part of town do you live in? Bearden.
Why did you choose that part of town, and what makes it special? I chose Bearden because it is close to downtown but also has easy accessibility to West Knoxville. It has a great sense of community and the neighborhoods are so unique and charming.
How long have you lived in Knoxville? I have lived in Knoxville for seven years, but I grew up in Kingsport, Tenn.
Favorite super hero… Spiderman!
Favorite TV show…. Friends
Favorite vacation… Alaska, so breathtakingly beautiful!
Favorite sports team… Hello… University of Tennessee!
Favorite time of day (and why)… 9:00 p.m. on a warm summer night. It’s so peaceful and I love the extra daylight summer brings.
